As a youth at 4-H summer camp, Jayme’s world opened up to environment, sustainability and community issues. She learned the importance of education and shared perspectives. Jayme loves watching people’s faces light up when they make important connections, and see the world in a new way. It starts with the opportunity to explore and discover. That’s the promise behind every sunrise, and the reason Jayme wakes up every morning.
