Hunter Graham Board Member
BIO

My name is Hunter Graham and I’m in the graduating class of 2020 at Rock Canyon High School. From a young age, I always knew that I wanted to add value to the world and make a difference in other peoples lives. When I’m not covered in dirt from playing baseball, you’ll find me enjoying time with my family and close friends. I feel fortunate to have this life and am grateful for all opportunities. Life is about extracting positivity from every moment, working towards your full potential, and creating memories with the one you love.

Liv Myers Board Member
BIO

I’m Olivia Myers and I’m a junior at Rock Canyon High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. I love to sing and play basketball in my free time and also volunteer with homeless shelters with the club I created at my school. I work at a non-profit children’s choir called the Colorado Children’s Chorale where I help teach younger kids to sing and read music as well as organize paperwork for the conductors. My main goal for the near future is to help others in need by providing them with the resources they need.

Sriya Surapaneni Board Member
BIO

My name is Sriya Surapaneni and I am a Sophomore at Rock Canyon High School. For the past 5 years, I have been a part of the Castle Pines Jr. Youth Group, and through that I volunteered at multiple organizations, including the Malala Foundation, Kits for Kids, Children’s Hospital, and Dumb Friends League. These experiences taught me how to interact with members in my community, and it cultivated my passion for service. YouthRoots will allow me to reinforce my desire to serve members of my community.
