Ashley Wagner, This Gal’s got Gold!!

If you missed the coverage of the 2013 Trophee Eric Bompard ISU Grand Prix in Paris, France, you missed a good show!

Our Ask, Listen, Learn Superstar Ashley Wagner, a 22-year-old Olympic hopeful, earned 194.37 points landing her the gold medal at the grand prix!  Ashley had a magnificent performance in Paris but admits she still needs to work hard in ordered to score a medal in Sochi.

Ashley’s dedication to her sport is demonstrating to many kids the importance of working hard to achieve your goals, whether that’s in the classroom, on the sports field, or in your community.  Ashley has joined us in encouraging other kids to pledge to say YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to underage drinking.

When asked what advice she has for kids to help them achieve their dreams, she said:

“Think about what your goals are and what you want to accomplish in life, then from there, realize that you’ll need to make decisions on whether you want to give into peer pressure or keep working toward your dreams. Be confident in what you want to achieve and how you’re going to get there- and I can tell you, underage drinking is not the way to go!”
