She is a Senior at Windsor Charter Academy and is involved in NHS, cross country, basketball, soccer, and tutoring. She was chairman of Public Relations Committee, Chairman of Civics Committee, Secretary of Finance Committee and Captain of WCA High School Girls’ Cross Country, and Basketball.
Rachel is planning to attend the University of Wyoming studying for a career as a nurse. She is planning to pursue a career in nursing by obtaining Her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in Wyoming. Ever since she was in elementary school, she has wanted to pursue a career in a medical field. After graduation she would utilize her education in the workplace by applying skills that she learned to different scenarios in the hospital. Over time her education would continue to have an impact on her professional life depending on which levels of degrees she obtains. Nurses are responsible for not only administering medications, but also for helping families, and people cope with illness and death. Nurses are essential to efficient healthcare and Rachel would feel honored to have a career that allows her to work closely with other medical professionals. She also believes that nursing would allow her to build on skills that she has already developed throughout high school.
Rachel’s 4-H career began in 2014 when she joined the Severance 4-H Club. Over time she grew very close to the other members of the club and, it became more and more easy for her to talk to people and to stand up in front of the entire club. She eventually decided to start running for leadership positions and in 2018 was elected by her club to serve as Vice-President. That required her to learn parliamentary procedure and to be more involved in the club and club activities. She is currently serving as secretary which means that she is responsible for taking notes throughout the meetings and sending emails to the president and club leaders. The leadership positions Rachel held have all helped her grow as a 4-H member and leader in her community. Rachel will be forever grateful for the lessons and opportunities that 4-H has provided her with.
Rachel is the recipient of the Weld County 4-H Family Consumer and Science Scholarship.
