In Memory of CHHS Student Ashley C. Payton

August 8, 2019

Ashley C. PaytonAshley C. Payton was a graduate social work student at Mason, kind and caring, and involved with her church. She held a special place in her heart for working with homeless populations and in mental health care. Ashley passed away in spring 2018 from scleroderma, just shy of her Mason graduation, and she was awarded a posthumous MSW degree from Mason. August 9, 2019 would have been Ashley’s 28th birthday. We send our condolences to her family, friends, and former classmates as they reflect on her life today and always.

In her honor, the Ashley C. Payton Memorial Scholarship has been established at CHHS, to award a current MSW student with a desire to change the world through social work.

All Mason MSW students are encouraged to apply.

Gifts to this scholarship fund can be made in remembrance of Ashley’s life.
