Nominator’s Comments:
“Ashley is a quiet leader pulling strength from her experiences and community to make her neighborhood stronger. She speaks strongly of the loss of her home to fire, how it brought her community together and how those experiences have brought her to lead change in her community and the neighborhood. Her work is committed to connecting disconnected youth in her community to opportunity and her volunteer work has pushed her outside her comfort zone to participate in the board of Community Concepts and Healthy Neighborhoods Planning Council to ensure the work happening in her neighborhood is best for her neighbors. She gives 110% and leads with passion and authenticity, always rooted in love and respect for her community.” – M. Parker, Lewiston, Maine
