Teen 2018 Newsletter

Hello Southwest Family,

My name is Ashley Lynn Little and I am Miss Southwest Michigan Teen 2018. I’m 15 years old and from Coloma. I attend Coloma High School as a freshman also known as a 9th grader. I have 3 siblings, an older brother Zachary, an older sister Alyssa, and a little brother, the baby of the bunch Anthony. I live with my parents Jason and Crystal Little, two of my siblings Alyssa and Anthony and our two dogs Haley and Diesel. Over my year of service I have, and will continue to advocate for Alzheimer's Awareness.

Recently I have started my speaking engagements going to various service clubs of Southwest Michigan such as Lions Clubs, Lioness Clubs, Rotary Clubs, and Kiwanis Clubs. I am so honored to be able to go out and speak to so many people about something so important to me. I love being able to have others share their experiences with me; those they’ve gone through or may be going through with a relative, friends or even co-workers, that have Alzheimer's Disease. This disease has spread wider than most people realize. I am so very excited to be able to advocate on behalf of the people in my family and the many other’s dealing with this disorder.

Traveling to different clubs all over Southwest Michigan has kept me very busy. In addition, on April 28th and 29th, I was joined by four new lovely ladies who earned the distinction of being a representative for the program.  They are all astonishing and so much fun, I am so excited about the year we’ll spend together! The Southwest Michigan Scholarship Program also held its annual Rainbow Golf Outing to raise dollars for the scholarships given through our program.  We are so thankful for our outstanding sponsors that make these amazing events possible!

I would appreciate it greatly if you would consider making a difference and joining me in the fight against Alzheimer’s. If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation, please contact the Southwest Michigan Scholarship Program office at 269-429-4999, or visit our website at www.misssouthwestmichigan.org.

Love Always,
