Leadership Training and Wilderness Experiences That Last a Lifetime
OFFICER OF THE MONTH
Gerardo is always very helpful and an outstanding leader on trips. He's friendly with all venturers and is a great example of a self starter. As one of our Quartermasters, he's constantly on top of the equipment situation during trips and when we return. A 4-year venturer, Gerardo is very experienced and always goes out of his way to teach others new things and assist in any task. We recognize his ability to have fun on trips and balance it out with getting things done.
Even though Nayeli could not participate in many trips; she still contributed a lot to the program. She has constantly given her best to fulfill her duty as the college and career officer and seek new information about colleges to share with her fellow venturers. She also worked very hard planning the trip to Kelso even though it ultimately got canceled due to COVID closures, we still recognize her for her hard work
Jessica has exceptionally planned trips and communicated with other student leaders. She is our car camping VP for this year, and with the current pandemic, she has planned and instructed all the SPL's with great attitude and attention. Now in her 3rd year with Felix Ventures, Jessica has become an amazing leader, a self-starter and an intricate part of the leadership of our program. It's our pleasure to recognize her for her leadership and dedication.
As a dedicated member of Felix Ventures, Joshua has shown impressive growth and leadership while teaching others along the way. His experience has allowed him to try new things and encourage others to do so as well. Joshua has always shown enthusiasm and a positive attitude on trips which encourages the rest of the group to do the same. We would like to recognize Joshua for always stepping up whether it be in helping with equipment, getting people to play a game on trips or simply encouraging others. He shown himself as an exceptional leader for our Joshua Tree Campout, and for that we would like to recognize him as officer of the month
Elizabeth has shown great dedication and commitment not only to the program but to her officer position. Elizabeth is always there when we need help and is never afraid to reach out and assist her fellow ventures. Elizabeth leadership as SPL for trips has been remarkable. Although only a sophomore, it does not go unnoticed that Elizabeth is an excellent venturer, officer, and hard worker. We congratulate Elizabeth and thank her for everything she has done to allow our program to run smoothly.
