2018 Scholarship Recipient - N. Rea

Natalie Rea
Antelope, California
Member Organization: Essendant 

My name is Natalie Rea and I am a student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I am currently a second year student studying Hospitality with a concentration in meetings and events. While I would like to be an event planner, I am also looking for opportunities in the hotel industry.

I am currently the School Spirit Coordinator on the Rebel Events Board, the main event-planning group on the UNLV campus. I focus on building school spirit, planning events that capitalize on our rivalry with the University of Nevada, Reno, and creating initiatives on social media to help involve students in school.

I am also a member of the UNLV Honors College, participating in the many events and opportunities that the honors college offers. I am able to network and befriend other ambitious, hard-working students.

I enjoy the freedom, opportunity, and independence of college and thanks to this scholarship I am able to continue on my life path and work as hard as I can to reach my career goals without the financial stress that burdens so many students. I will continue to work hard in order to reach my goals.
