Meet Our Regional Board
Talia, Programming Vice President
Hannah, Religious & Cultural Vice President
Lauren, Social Action Vice President
Hey Missouri Valley! My name is Lauren and I am so thrilled to be serving as your 2018-2019 Social Action Vice President. I am a senior from St. Louis and a proud member of SETYG. This summer I am spending my fourth year as a counselor at a Jewish day camp, and I also work at Francesca’s. When I’m not at a NFTY event, you can find me at a debate tournament, talking about civic engagement, or quoting too many Vines. Feel free to contact me at any time, whether it’s to talk about a social action issue or even just to share cute photos of dogs. I can’t wait for a fantastic year in the best region!!
Julian, SLIID Membership Vice President
Hey Missouri Valley! My name is Julian and I am your SLIID (St. Louis, Illinois, Iowa district) Membership Vice President for this up coming school year. I will turn 18 years old on October 16th, and will be a senior at University City High School in St. Louis.
I have attended Goldman Union Camp Institute (GUCI) for the past 9 years and am very involved in NFTY (duh). During my free time I enjoy hanging with my friends, writing mixers, and showering. I love college sports and the St. Louis Cardinals. I also love talking to people, making friends, and helping people make friends. I’m super excited for this year in NFTY and hope everything else is as well.
Jesse, Western Membership Vice President
Ben, Communications and Visuals Vice President
Blair, Special Projects Coordinator
Hey MV! I’m Blair and I could not be more excited to serve as the Special Projects Coordinator for the upcoming school year! I’m going to be a junior at Parkway Central High School next year, and I am a member of UHTYG. This summer, I spent the first week of summer being a counselor at Camp Rainbow for the first time! In my free time I love to play with my dog Rocky and do makeup. I cannot wait to see everyone at events this year!
NFTY Missouri Valley is governed by a board of teen leaders who are elected by their peers that serve a one-year term. Regional board members play a critical role in all aspects of running the region including event planning and marketing, and mentoring teen leaders from our local youth communities. The regional board is mentored by a Regional Director of Youth Engagement who oversees all programs and administration.
