Ashley and Sarah Abel Memorial Scholarship

The Ashley and Sara Abel memorial scholarships fund was established to honor these two sisters who loved as only sisters can and were best friends too. Ashley Abel (1978 - 2015) and Sara Abel (1983 - 2003) were talented, artistic and creative personalities. As young children many hours were spent "playing" school together. It instilled a gift of learning that served them in their AISD Careers. Ashley loved dance, ballet, and was a member of the Abilene High Gold Rush Dance Team. Sara was Editor in Chief for "The Battery," Abilene High School's newspaper, her junior and senior year. Ashley and Sara would be happy to be helping someone to follow their dreams and receive their college degree.
