The Value of Crosby Scholars

The value of Crosby Scholars goes beyond just offering assistance to students and parents for future success after High school. Crosby Scholars values the importance of building effective relationships with the parents of students in the program to ensure that their child is receiving the benefits necessary to thrive. Our values are accountability, respectfulness, service, trustworthiness and supportiveness. Each one is used on a day to day basis in everything we do here at Crosby Scholars. We take pride in knowing that we are making a difference in the students’ lives and they are learning more about themselves and their future endeavors. With the help of our amazing donors and all the many resources received, we are able to continue this program and inspire success together.


We all make mistakes but our mistakes do not define who we are.

“A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it and never makes that mistake again.” – Roy H. Williams

      We all make mistakes. But no matter what you mess up on, acknowledging your own errors in your work; you can still overcome your mistakes. Taking ownership of what happened and learning from them opens doors to progression.

       Don’t beat yourself down over something you did, we’re human. We are not perfect. Rather than looking at mistakes as a negative situation, look at them as opportunities for growth. What these opportunities are, are ultimately up to you, but they’re endless. Ask yourself, ‘what did I mess up on and how I can improve going forward?’

Here’s a few things to remember next time you make a mistake:

Meet your new Middle School Coordinator!

Hi guys! My name is Ashley Scott, I’m your new Middle School Coordinator. I’m excited to join Crosby Scholars and I can’t wait to meet everyone. What attracted me to this position was that I would have the opportunity to help students prepare for college and give positive advice from my college experience. The Crosby Scholars program is important for students because they learn so many great things. Students become more involved in the community, their school and their studies. They are able to learn about the different options to pay for college and the many career paths.

I’m a North Carolina native and I graduated from Statesville High School, go Greyhounds! I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro and my Master’s in Communication from Morehead State University.

In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, riding my dirt-bike, walking my dogs and playing basketball. So if anyone wants to play one-on-one, this is your official challenge. 🙂

My passion has always been to help and create a positive environment. I enjoy lending a helping hand wherever it is needed. I can’t wait to see how I can help contribute to Crosby Scholars and the amazing Middle School students.
