"We are deeply saddened that one of our students, Ally Davis, passed away this morning in a car accident. She was a wonderful young lady and it is an understatement that we will miss her greatly.
“Ally was a senior Musical Theatre student. She recently was the lead in Tick Tick Boom! and Little Buttercup in HMS Pinafore at NKU. She was destined for a strong vocal career in theatre with a glorious singing voice.
“Her talent was only matched by the size of her heart and her infectious smile which could light up any room. Ally was loved by her classmates and a true friend through the best and hardest of times. The dedication to which she pursued her craft was an inspiration to all of us.
“In class, on stage, or passing in the hallways, Ally made you feel as if you’d been friends for a lifetime. She represents the best in all of us, and we will forever be lucky to have enjoyed her artistry, friendship, and love of life.”
Northern Kentucky University released the following statement:
