Moved me to tears. 5 yrs ago Ashanti Curry faced losing her U.S. Naval Academy acceptance because she couldn't get her dads signature. Our story helped make that happen, her mom just sent me these graduation pics "We did it, you did it." So proud of you Ashanti! @ActionNewsJaxpic.twitter.com/U9fYn49m8B
Curry is now writing the next chapter to her story, a story of service that Jacksonville and our country can be proud of.
Curry's mother contacted ActionNewsJax’s Paige Kelton on Facebook this weekend with pictures and two words that were a reminder of the power one person’s story can have. The picture was of Curry’s graduation, the words – “thank you.”
