Chenango Stories: Cora Ashcraft

One thing Cora Ashcraft has learned while traveling and moving to various places, she says is it is not worth having something if you canít appreciate it.

Ashcraft was born and raised in Norwich, and as a teenager, she already had the inclination to travel and leave her hometown in hopes she would find something else out there that would suit her better.



In middle school, Cora began Tae Kwon Do, and by the time she graduated high school, she was a black belt. Cora played a lot of sports and spent a lot of time doing recreational activities.

After graduating in 2001, she attended college at SUNY Canton. She didnít find what she was looking for there and decided to come back home and figure out what she wanted to pursue next.
