Thank you for your hard work! $379,000 for individuals with disabilities.
My name is Nerissa Arellano and it is my privilege to be the Candidate representing VTC Enterprises in the 2019 Santa Maria Elks Rodeo Queen Competition. I am truly excited for this opportunity to get involved with the community, get the community involved with VTC, and to raise funds for such a great organization!
I am 18 years old and a senior at Ernest Righetti High School. Aside from my academic studies, I am an active member in both the Future Farmers of America organization and 4-H. Showing animals competitively is something I am passionate about and have been participating in for 7 years, showing pigs specifically for the past six. After high school I plan to attend Allan Hancock College for my Business Administration Transfer Degree, then move on to a 4-year college in Northern California (preferably Sacramento State University, UC Santa Cruz, or Chico State) where I will study English and Liberal Studies to reach my goal of becoming an English teacher.
