Spotlight on Phillips Resident, Travis Nez
A recent graduate from the College of St. Scholastica with a Bachelor of Arts in Management and a minor in Marketing, Travis Nez previously attended the Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College where he received an Associates of Applied Sciences degree. Travis will be attending the Mitchell Hamline School of Law during the fall term. His career goal is to practice Native American Law as he is a member of the Colorado River Indian Tribes from southwest Arizona.
Excluding parents, we asked Travis who has influenced him the most, and Travis chose his sister, Maureen. “She has influenced me to succeed at all levels, whether its educational or in the work place.”
Apparently Maureen’s influence has been strong with her younger brother, because, while only in his early 20s, Travis has already achieved a lot. Along with his success at college and his upcoming studies in law, he holds a Wisconsin Real Estate Salesperson license. He is also active in the community, serving on the Price County Board of Supervisors. Travis said that these two positions have provided him with optimum opportunities to push our local amenities, all of which he feels are some of his greatest contributions to Price County.
Another membership that Travis is proud of his association with the Republican Party, which is of great interest to him. “While I have a lot [of favorite politicians], at the moment Donald J. Trump is my favorite, because I truly believe he is going to ‘Make America Great Again.’ Donald Trump is doing something that most people never expected could be done by a businessman. In addition, he is the only one running for president that has the experience to negotiate our country’s position. We have elected well-seasoned politicians every year. Now we finally have a candidate that can bring our country back.”
Embracing his conservative side, Travis said that if he only had two minutes to take his most prized, non-living possessions from his house, he would save some of his guns. Travis is a firm believer in American’s Constitutional right to bear arms.
Along with hunting with those guns and fishing, Travis enjoys biking, golfing, and spending time on the water. Every year, Travis takes a trip to Europe to explore historical sites and local attractions. “Quality of life is very important, because we only live once,” Travis remarked. “I truly believe we only have one shot at finding our inner passions.
With that said, Travis believes we have rich opportunities in Price County. “Nothing can match our quality of life let alone the low cost of living. We have some of the most affordable housing in the country. If a person ever dreamed about owning a farm, land, or even a lake home, Price County is full of opportunities to help anyone fulfill that goal.”
While Travis is busy achieving his life’s goals, he is already thinking about his future. “If I could go back to when I was eighteen, I should have purchased large amounts of LinkedIn, Insulet, and Diana Shipping stocks, along with various other well performing stocks that would have allowed me to retire.” We mentioned to Travis that for him eighteen was only three short years ago, and we are certain he will have plenty more opportunities where he can capitalize.
