Reese has been a dedicated member of Cherokee’s Student Council and was selected to represent  Cherokee at the New Jersey Association of Student Council Convention. Her dedication to giving back to her community is commendable and impressive, especially for such a young individual. I wish her the best of  luck in her future endeavors and we look forward to hearing about more of her wonderful  accomplishments.”

Her goal is to work as a public interest lawyer to help members of society who are marginalized and unable to advocate for themselves. Reese is an exceptional role model; her enthusiasm  and dedication serve as an inspiration to our entire community.
