Family and Consumer Science is the reason my future has direction and stability. It’s the reason I’m excited to graduate and go out into the world.

Being involved with the FACS program has allowed me to provide leadership and support to those working within families and communities, and help them to achieve the optimal quality of life.

I now appreciate the importance of the family unit, practice community involvement, and embrace the diversity and value of all people.

The final way my life will be enriched … is through the understanding that a person’s uniqueness gives them great value.

SCHOLARSHIP: Cumulative GPA is 3.97; 24 composite ACT; 60 class ranking.

AWARDS AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS: Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America member of the month February 2018. Awarded gold medal in the 2017 Utah Regional FCCLA Star Event fashion design competition.
