Ashley has been employed with Cannon for 9 years and is currently the Information Services Applications Manager for Cannon.

The Cannon Memorial Hospital Auxiliary established the Dr. John Harden Scholarship in 1996 as a way of honoring the memory of Dr. John Harden, a physician and surgeon who devoted his life to serving Cannon Memorial Hospital and the people of Pickens County. A scholarship of $2,000 is awarded annually to a candidate planning a career in a health care field. The scholarship is open to students from Pickens High School, Liberty High School, Prince Avenue Prep School and Lakeview Christian Academy. Employees of Cannon Memorial Hospital, their spouses, and children, Cannon volunteers and their children age 25 and under are also eligible, as well as employees of Pickens and Liberty physician practices or dental and eye care practices.
A $30,000 donation from the late William G. Acker, a trustee emeritus of Cannon Memorial Hospital, helps fund this scholarship program.
