Jordan & Ashley Scholarship Foundation

The Jordan & Ashley Siegel Scholarship fund was founded in the summer of 2012 by Christie Siegel in association with the Royal Oak Youth Assistance Program. After Christie’s children were killed in a rollover car accident, there was an outpouring of love and support from friends, family, and the community. Christie took that momentum and decided to give back to the community that she and her children were so involved in.

The Jordan & Ashley Siegel Scholarship fund, together with the Youth Assistance Program, helps families facing financial hardship. Funds raised are primarily designated for students attending 6th grade camp at Camp Copneconic and for Grants to 8th grade students participating in the annual class trip to Washington, DC.

Additional funds are used to aide children involved in “pay to play” sports and extracurricular activities such as band & orchestra, and to purchase commemorative yearbooks for qualifying students in the Middle & High School. Finally, through the scholarship fund, Christie established the Jordan & Ashley Siegel Scholarship Award. This award is given to two high school graduating seniors based on essay application submissions.

 

Christie established the scholarship fund because of how much her children gained from and enjoyed extra-curricular activities. All proceeds raised return to the community which played such an important and influential role in their lives. By means of the scholarship fund, the positive energy both Jordan and Ashley radiated and the happy go lucky spirit that everyone loved and knew so well will continue for years to come.
