Ashley Reel

Spring, Texas

Ashley Reel, 15, of Spring, Texas, a freshman at Oak Ridge High School, led a homecoming dress collection to benefit girls affected by Hurricane Harvey, gathering 3,600 dresses and outfitting more than 1,200 girls so that they could still attend the pivotal high school event. Ashley’s “Say Yes to the Homecoming Dress” initiative drew dress and accessory donations from across the U.S. and Germany, as well as support from more than 100 volunteers.
