We are excited to spotlight our Miss Greater Des Moines Outstanding Teen 2017 Alexis Ashton.
"This past year I attended my first year of college at Iowa State University. I went in as an open engineering major and ended up declaring industrial engineering. I am also one of 3 feature twirlers for the Cyclone Football Varsity Marching Band. I enjoy twirling at football game, basketball halftimes, and different events throughout the year! Since competing in the Greater Des Moines pageant around 3 years ago, I have noticed my social skills flourish. Service has also become part of my lifestyle. GDM not only helped sculpt me to the women I am today, but helped prep me for Miss Iowa in a way that I was extremely confident with everything I set forward to do during that week"
