- Are any of the board members holdovers from the previous leadership? (NT) -- curious in another state, 21:55:57 09/29/15 Tue
- So cute! Did she do anything at Miss A? (NT) -- She looks like a contender now!, 04:46:48 09/30/15 Wed
- She won every prelim at state and was poised to do well, but didn't place. The reality show did her in, I think. She's very smart, talented and, yes, cute. She will do an excellent job for IL. It's an exciting day for the IL program after so many years of darkness. (NT) -- No name, 08:10:55 09/30/15 Wed
- I hate using the word "robbed", but in this case I truly think it applies. She was stunning in every phase of competition, had a good talent, great wardrobe and seemed to speak well in every clip I saw. The fact that she didn't make even the first cut was very shocking. (NT) -- Not even close to IL, 12:03:37 09/30/15 Wed
- I remember she won Pageant Central's "Face of Miss America" contest that year. I was shocked that she didn't place. (NT) -- fan, 12:42:22 09/30/15 Wed
- Sadly no. She had the misfortune of competing the same year as Hannah Kiefer from Virginia and at the time they looked almost identical. I thought Ashley was prettier but Hannah was coming from a more competitive state. (NT) -- No name, 19:37:49 09/30/15 Wed
- I loved her on the reality show!!! She wasn't into letting herself be bullied. (NT) -- No name, 09:26:49 09/30/15 Wed
- I remember when she competed in Miss Mississippi and I loved her then! She has such a beautiful (NT) -- No name, 13:00:56 09/30/15 Wed
- Did she place in MS? Was she a university of Mississippi student? This is great!! (NT) -- No name, 14:47:20 09/30/15 Wed
- I always liked Ashley a lot and hated the way the reality show made her seem inflexible or unwilling to take advice. If I remember correctly, the "fashion experts" on the show were trying to give her a makeover including a hair cut. I kept thinking that there is no way in this world I would cut my hair off right before Miss America just because of pressure from the gimmick reality show. I think Ashley is one of those girls who could have won or placed in the top 5 if she had competed at Miss America a few years prior. Congratulations to her and Illinois!

- I thought it was a Southern state that wouldn't do the haircut and the show people liked that. (NT) -- d..., 22:44:52 09/30/15 Wed
- I remember she was my pick for Miss America that year, but I don (NT) -- No name, 01:04:18 10/01/15 Thu
- I remember she was my pick for Miss America that year, but I don't recall what her talent was. Does anyone know and how well did she do with it at the pageant? (NT) -- No name, 01:05:30 10/01/15 Thu
- She sang. I can't be 100% sure of the song, it might have been "To Love You More," but it was the wrong song for her. After talent you knew and she knew it was over for her. A shame. (NT) -- No name, 05:33:56 10/01/15 Thu
- An Executive Director who herself was a titleholder less than 10 years ago could bring a fresh approach to the program and also be refreshing to the organization. (NT) -- Good luck!, 17:40:56 10/01/15 Thu
- she is really pretty. (NT) -- No name, 19:41:35 10/01/15 Thu
- Excellent there is finally a State Director who looks the part and can be an example instead of some of the old hags that are EDs, FDs & State Directors (NT) -- Its about time, 20:39:38 10/01/15 Thu
