Attendee Spotlight: Shelby Simmons


Shelby Simmons

Shelby Simmons is a rising senior at Valdosta State University.  She is a Political Science major with a focus on International Relations.  She first heard about Turning Point USA from our field coordinator, Gillian Castillo in Florida.

Gillian introduced Shelby to Turning Point USA and she was thrilled to find such a dynamic organization that was geared towards people her age.  Since Shelby has gotten involved she has become a valuable activist.  She created a chapter on her campus and had the opportunity to attend CPAC 2015 as a TPUSA Ambassador.  Shelby said that attending CPAC was one of the, “best experiences of my life”.

Shelby will be attending the Young Women’s Leadership Summit in June, and will have the opportunity to connect with even more like-minded students.  Shelby is very excited for the engaging speakers and to be in the company of so many powerful women.  She cannot wait to connect with conservative women from across the country to, “rally behind our conservative values”.
