An experience as a 4-H camp mentor helped Shelby realize the importance of advocating for those who cannot advocate for themselves. At the Mission Possible camp for youth with disabilities, Shelby was paired with a camper who was developmentally delayed and nonverbal. Not only did this experience give Shelby an appreciation for her ability to complete tasks independently that we typically take for granted, but it also led her to guard against seeing the differences among us. She has taken this value of inclusion back to her leadership roles at school and in the community, including 4-H, student council, Future Farmers of America, band, and more. Shelby can be seen in the community coordinating food drives, leading school tours, hosting blood drives – all while holding down a job and maintaining an exceptional GPA. From New Braunfels, Texas, Shelby will attend Texas A&M University in the fall.
