*An 18-year-old student at the University of Texas San Antonio just won $20,000 from CoverGirl in a model search that culminated on Thursday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
“I’m definitely going to use it to support the SMILE Movement,” said Alexis Harris of her winnings. “And we’re going to use the money to give back to different local organizations: Haven for Hope, different groups locally.”
DeGeneres set up a mock press conference on the show to announce Harris as the winner. She sat visibly stunned in the audience, and flipped out when Ellen ushered out her family to view her competition entry video.
Harris started a local non-profit to help the needy. Ellen said Alexis has accomplished more than most adults, making her the perfect winner.
