She received the Idaho Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's "Sembrador del Futuro" award for 2017 (Planting Seeds for a Better Future) in recognition for the work she does with youth in the Treasure Valley, the difference she's making in the community by helping shape tomorrow's leaders and for her activism within the Latino community.

This summer, University of Idaho Extension helped launch a pilot Farm to Summer Program led by the Idaho Department of Agriculture's Idaho Preferred Program, in collaboration with Food Producers of Idaho, with many sponsors and supporters. Extension officers helped several Treasure Valley summer feeding programs procure local produce for a special "all Idaho lunch" and paired the meal with an educational presentation and activity delivered by UI undergraduate students Carly Weaver, UI Extension intern, and Clayton King, food producers intern. Students also received a gift bag with coupons, promotional materials and fresh produce to take home. The program reached students in Boise, Nampa, Caldwell, Marsing, Homedale and Payette.
