Ali did well her first year and was invited to join the Honors program at K-State, as well as the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. She was an Academic Scholar in the School of Human Ecology and a Leadership Scholar. Ali finished her first year in the top 10 percent of her class. While at K-State, she played intramural soccer and basketball. She was elected a Panhellenic representative from Pi Phi. Ali loved her new friends and sorority.

As we said in your high school yearbook, having you in our lives has been such an absolute thrill. You didn’t get the chance to become everything you could be, and that is a huge loss. We always said you were our precious angel from Heaven and now you have gone Home. You filled a space in us we didn’t know we were missing until we had you, but now we are left with a hole in our hearts. We love you so much, our brown-eyed girl. We’ll never forget you. One short year ago, we cried over letting you go to college. Now, as we finally have to let you go, may angels lead you into paradise. We thank God for you and your life.
