Need to script a password reset for multiple users in the same OU in Active Directory

I have a test AD OU and I need to reset a select number of users to the same password.  Was hoping to get some help with some type of PowerShell command or tool to facilitate this.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have a list of user names in a text file..
Import-Module Activedirectory
GC C:\input.txt | %{Set-ADAccountPassword $_ -Reset -NewPassword (ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText "p@ssw0rd" -Force)}

Open in new window

Sample input file
UserA
UserB
UserC

Open in new window

Powershell script right from the MS script gallery: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Reset-password-for-all-412fbc72
