Deaver, a junior at SDSU, is majoring in early childhood education with a minor in Spanish. She is a 2003 graduate of Vermillion High School.
The PR team members represent 10 communities in South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa. The members are involved in providing awareness of the wide variety of careers in the family and consumer sciences, giving tours of the college departments, writing news articles and preparing displays to promote the college. Team members will speak to high school classes, counselors, youth organizations and community service groups.
Deaver is among the first group of students selected for the Family and Consumer Sciences PR team. Students are chosen based on an application and interview with college faculty. The members are trained for giving presentations on the university, the departments within the college, curriculum and the careers available for students graduating with Family and Consumer Sciences degrees.
