Go Kap, Go!

The city of Reno is undoubtedly very supportive of former University of Nevada, Reno quarterback Colin Kaepernick as he went to the Super Bowl for the first time since starting for the 49ers. Reno’s famous landmark, the Reno Arch, showed their support for Kaepernick by hanging the “Go Kap! Go!” sign on the famous arch over the weekend and have encouraged other downtown casinos and business to show their support by doing the same. By doing so, Mayor Bob Cashell believed that it generated “great community spirit.” Although the game was a nail biter and the 49ers didn’t take the cake this year in the Super Bowl, Reno is still very supportive of their very own hometown star Colin Kaepernick. https://thisisreno.com/2013/02/go-kap-go/

My name is Kendra Fleming. I am 20 years old and currently a junior at University of Nevada, Reno with a major in English Literature and a minor in Cultural Anthropology. I love volleyball, soccer, hanging out with friends and warm weather. Born in California and raised in Las Vegas, I have always wanted to have a career that’s involved in the area of English, but I was never sure what until my sophomore year in college. I am an English literature major with the hopes of becoming an editor after college, but for now I am working on my writing. To be a great editor, I need to be a good writer as well. I can only get better with more practice outside of my scholarly studies.
