Meaghen Basso, a first year FCCLA member from Spring Creek is beyond excited to represent the state of Nevada as the President! She was born and raised in Spring Creek, Nevada, and is a senior this year. After high school, she plans on going to Utah for college, to live closer to her family, and to explore the different degrees that evolve around biology. Believe it or not, she is a very outdoorsy girl that has a heart for hunting, fishing, and racing her dirt bike. She feels at ease in the crisp mountain air. She loves to be involved, as she is also in FFA and a freshman mentor. She’s all for giving back to the community, as she is always seeking community service opportunities. She placed high gold in her project, recycle and repurpose, and attended nationals. Her most memorable moment at SLC is meeting new people and making new bonds. In this upcoming year, my goal is to encourage more kids to get involved, and make it count. I believe that all kids have the potential to be the best they can be.
Jenifer Reyes is our new Vice President of Development for the 2022-2023 school year, as a senior at the Academy of Arts, Careers, and Technology. Jenifer is a three-year Teaching and Training student, where she was introduced to FCCLA by her amazing academy teacher. It was not until her sophomore year when she competed in her first FCCLA event, that she learned the true value of her high achieving efforts. During the pandemic, Jenifer received a digital learning award in the 2020-2021 school year for her dedication and endeavor. The same year, she received an Education and Training academy award for excellence, along with a silver medal in FCCLA. Junior year, as she won the highest place silver, with no gold nominations above, it inspired her to keep reaching for success. In her free time, she enjoys spending time in nature, getting to know herself further, and playing with her smaller siblings. She has participated in service opportunities like Letters for Rose and helped her local school community through fundraising, and other leadership positions. Jenifer plans to attend UNR as a Psychology major, as she is highly interested in transforming herself and her surroundings into authenticity. Through this major, she hopes to achieve a master’s or a Doctorate degree while exploring the different career options that psychology has to offer. Her ultimate goal is to succeed as a first-generation student while making her parents proud of such results. “Patience, persistence, and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success”-Napoleon Hill.
