Luis Alverto Ávalos

Class of 2020

I am a Mexican-Salvadoran-American born and raised in southwest Kansas. I am currently completing my undergraduate studies at Kansas State University, graduating in December of 2020. Upon graduating, I will be receiving a B.S. from the College of Agriculture majoring in Park Management & Conservation with a secondary major in Natural Resources & Environmental Science and a minor in Music. My past fieldwork experience includes working with the Conservation Legacy-Appalachian Conservation Corps in Virginia where I engaged in conservation projects across the Shenandoah Valley. I plan to continue my passion for preserving the environment by becoming an Interpretative Park Ranger and guiding individuals on their personal journeys towards environmental protection.
