Your State Representatives

State Representative Melissa V.

“I love caring for others and I want to make a difference in someone’s life, even if it’s just one person.”

-Melissa

Why Melissa was Nominated:

Melissa transferred from another school district and has had a lot of emotional experiences with bullying. I used to say that lunchtime and recess was a student’s favorite time of the day. I did not realize that it is the complete opposite for some students. I have had students come eat lunch in my office because they did not want to be in the cafeteria environment. Melissa is a very outgoing acting girl. Polite and nice, always willing to help others. She has come a very long way and is willing to share her story to help others. Melissa is also a youth leader at her church, the youngest one they have had. She is strong, dedicated and willing to try different things. She wants to make a difference.
