fter a successful year, Region 7 would like to

congratulate the leadership that pieced it all together. Region 7 saw its biggest improvements, and it is no surprise that the youngest region has already established a legacy. Thanks to our Regional Vice-President (RVP) Natalie Sabin for her support and managerial execution, as well as being our voice in the National Board of Directors (NBOD)!

Laura Neira 2011 – 2012 RSR

Thanks also go out to our 2011-2012 Sub-RSRs: Moises Figueroa, Gabriel Arab, Leslie Rodriguez, Laura Cano, and the rest of the regional team: Marinela Piñate (SHPE Jr. Representative), Andrea Sanchez (Regional Graduate Representative), Daniel Fuentes (Regional Webmaster), and Rafael Restrepo (Sub-RSR Apprentice) for their hard work and commitment to the region. Finally, we would like to thank our former RSR, Laura Neira for her hard work and dedication to SHPE. Our region underwent its largest membership growth and pride build-up due to Laura’s initiatives and efforts. Region 7 is more dominant than it has ever been.

Gabriel Arab 2012 – 2013 RSR

Region 7 now welcomes our new Regional Student Representative, Gabriel Arab. Gabriel has been part of the regional team since 2011 as the Georgia Sub-RSR, and he is now eager to put his experience as a regional leader into practice to fulfill his position as RSR. We are sure Region 7 is in the cusp of our members’ and leaders’ combined hands.

Meet the 2012-2013 Regional Leadership Team!
