    (circa 1996- )
    Born in Illinois
    Resided in Chicago, Illinois
    Attended Eberhart Elementary School in Chicago, Illinois
    Awarded a 2008 Dodge Caliber by Chicago Public Schools as perfect attendance recognition (June 23, 2008)
    Out of 150 eligible students, she was one of only 19 who attended the drawing for the vehicle.
    Incentives to promote perfect attendance included electronic equipment, gift certificates, and paid vacations.
    The school district's attempt to improve class attendance with such lavish incentives as a $17,500 car was criticized by many.
    Her parents showed more excitement than Ashley when they learned she had drawn the winning key to the Caliber.
    She had to wait four years to be legally able to drive the vehicle she won.
    The school system's incentives helped increase regular class attendance above 91% for the school year.
    Lavish gifts were used as incentives to encourage parents to be more involved with their child's education.
    Nearly 190,000 Chicago Public School students had at least three months of perfect attendance during the school year.
    Ashley's family was proud of her academic achievements as well as her attendance.
    About her achievement, she stated 'Perfect attendance means a good education, a better future and ... I won a car now.'
