Meleny Jacome-Banuelos is from Johnson City, KS and is working towards a Bachelors of Science in Organizational Leadership and has a minor in Music. She joined United Way of Ellis County to challenge herself, and do something different with the knowledge and skills she has gained, so far, in the organizational leadership program. She hopes to, one day, start her own non-profit organization, and her involvement in FHSU has put her in a good position to do so. Meleny is currently the service coordinator of Circle K International, a student organization focused on service. She is also a Drum Major for the FHSU Tiger Marching Band. In addition, she is a member of the Symphonic Winds, Wind Ensemble, Clarinet Choir, and Hays Symphony Orchestra. She enjoys hiking, spending time with her friends and family, reading, and listening to Rachmaninoff’s piano concertos.
