Ava Mury has been at Ascension since Pre- K4 and will be graduating as an Alpha Omega. During her time at Ascension she has been involved in BETA, NHS, Cupcakes for Causes, Pro-Life Club, and danced with Gator Jazz for 3 years. Ava says, “Ascension has been my second home forever. I couldn’t imagine spending 14 years of my life anywhere else. The memories I have created, friendships I have made, and things I’ve accomplished in my time here will always hold a special place in my heart”. 

Ava spends most of her time outside of school dancing and spending time with friends and family. Ava has been dancing since she was 2 years old at her mom’s studio, Morgan Street Dance Company. Since her mother, Marika Mury, owns the studio, she grew up dancing around as well as making up her own dances with her sister and her cousin. Ava is attending Mississippi College in the fall to study Forensic Science. Ave is striving one day to be in the FBI. 

With only a few more months left at home Ava is trying to spend as much time as she can with the people she loves. Ava encourages all the underclassmen, “Do what brings you happiness. While it may not be the ‘cool’ thing to do, find what makes you happy and stick with it. At the end of the day, other people’s perceptions of you do not matter.”
