Weekly in Asheboro, promoting the publication in bars, taking photographs of the revelers and scouting new distribution points. Thanks, Ashley! The 21-year-old go-getter has worked at Hooters in High Point, and will probably go back at the beginning of the new year to earn money to support her education. She’s enrolled in the dental hygiene program at Randolph Community College and plans to eventually transfer to GTCC to finish her education. Her passion for her budding career comes from a specific personal passion. “I’m a freak about clean teeth,” she says. “That’s my biggest pet peeve — I hate people with ugly teeth.”
