Ashley Noelle Jackson, aka Miss University Place USA 2013, recently paid a visit to the University Place Care Center, which was hosting a Health Fair. During her visit, Ashley couldn’t resist a cuddle from Peoples Retirement Community’s resident dog Gabe. The duo quickly became friends and posed for pictures. Ashley is home for summer break from Catawba College in Salisbury, N.C. where she is studying Theatre Arts. Although Ashley’s passion is advocating for arts in schools for youth, she is taking her role as Miss University Place seriously and representing the city proudly, as evidenced by her attendance at the Health Fair. Ashley is currently seeking sponsors. She can be reached at email@example.com or (253)906-3855.
