Carl and Avis Ramsey
Carl and Avis Ramsey surprised Ashland University with a bequest. Ashland Theological Seminary received funds utilized in the construction of the Sandberg Leadership Center, and the remainder was designated toward an endowed scholarship program for students attending Ashland University from Richland County. Although Carl, a farmer and Ashland friend in nearby Butler, OH never attended Ashland, two of his brothers were alums, as well as three sisters-in-law and several other family members. Avis (Archibald), one of eight preachers kids, became a teacher after leaving Ashland and dedicated her life to students and their church. Ruth Ramsey, Avis younger sister who married one of Carls brothers, resides in Avon Lake, OH with her daughter. Anne Morgan, 96 years young, who attended Ashland for a brief time as well, recently attended the groundbreaking ceremony where Carl and Avis generosity was celebrated.
