People of Eagle
Meet Ashley Hellige
I have decided to start a new section in the Eagle Newsletter each week. It will be featuring a person in our community. I feel like sometimes we can get so stuck in our own world that we don't get to know the people that we see every day. You know how I feel about volunteers and small business owners so I am sure I will be featuring several of those but there are no "special" qualifications to be featured. I want us all to get to know our neighbors.
I live near Eagle Lake with my husband, Dan, and my son, William. I teach third grade at Eagle Elementary where William attends school. He is in fourth grade this year and is enjoying learning about Nebraska history. Dan works in Lincoln designing heating and cooling systems for Geary Engineering. We also have Great Pyrenees named Piper. She is very sweet, but likes to bark at the neighbors.
My parents also live in Eagle near the pool where I grew up. I attended the school I now teach at and for my first few years of teaching I was teaching in the same fifth grade classroom in which I was once a student! Mrs. Lehr and Mr. Culver were teachers of mine!
I love to hike, travel, and decorate. Growing up I danced at Universal Dance Academy for 12 years. I played parts in the ballet including Jiminy Cricket and Scar. Those are my fondest memories of my childhood.
I connect with the community through teaching. It is more than a full time job as I spend much of my personal time planning for my students. I love getting to know the kids and after a year together I feel like we are a family. It has always been my dream to have a big family and now I do. ❤️
Well, one unique thing about me is I can wiggle my ears. 😂 I also have an instagram account, @myuglysplitlevel, through which I share all of ourrenovationn projects. We love DIY projects!
*I need your help...If you know of someone in our amazing community that should be featured please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can reach out to them. TIA!

2019 No Limits Fall Activism Summit
Big Tobacco has a long history of marketing its deadly products to youth through manipulation and deception, and we’ve seen it all and had enough of it! As youth, we have the voice of change in this world and the power to make a positive difference. By using our voice, we will continue to stand up against Big Tobacco, bringing attention to the environmental impacts of tobacco products and marketing toward youth. Youth can empower, help guide and provide our peers with resources to create the change.
A few of the topics youth will learn about include No Limits and Big Tobacco 101, Big Tobacco’s history of manipulative marketing tactics, the positive difference youth are capable of making, how tobacco harms the environment, and how to take strategic steps in the right direction to make change a reality.
Here’s a quick summary:
When: November 16 – 17, 2019
Where: Divots Conference Center, Norfolk, NE
Cost: FREE (We’ll even pick you up!)
We’re looking for Nebraska youth who:
- Are 12–18 years old, in grades 7–12.
- Want to find out the truth behind Big Tobacco’s lies.
- Are willing to take action against tobacco in their community and state.
Do you need a group or sponsor?
Both individuals and groups are welcome. A group sponsor is encouraged but not required.
No Limits tries to provide transportation to and from the summit at no cost to participants. Our buses will be making several stops across the state. Here is a list of potential stops for the summit.
