Hometown: Nashville, TennesseeWhile at Samford, Ava has had the privilege of serving with The Lakeshore Foundation, a recreational facility adapted for those with physical disabilities and chronic illness. She began her involvement in the aquatics department helping with the youth swim team and swim lessons. Later, she helped assistant coach for the youth power soccer team (wheelchair soccer) who celebrated their first winning game this past year! This year Ava looks forward to getting involved with the wheelchair basketball team and archery team. She can’t wait to see all that will happen in this last year as a Micah Fellow and how she will be able to continue her work with Lakeshore in the future.
