NCCF Scholar Ashley Dixon

Ashley is always looking to help animals in need. Recently, she helped an injured duck recover and find its way back to its mother. “Even though my friends thought I was being ridiculous and didn’t understand why I wanted to help the duck so badly, I honestly can’t think of anything better that I could have done with my day,” she said.
