Laney stated, “I have had many opportunities to volunteer with different organizations since I was a kid, and volunteering is important to me because I can help fulfill needs in my community and state. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to represent the state of South Dakota at nationals this summer and meet the rest of the state titleholders who are also making an impact through volunteerism!” Laney started the nonprofit Art For All, Inc, which is her platform for her year of service, and she will be traveling across the state of South Dakota to present on arts education.

Laney is currently a student at Dakota Wesleyan University and is majoring in elementary and special education with an endorsement in English as a second language. She is the daughter of Mike and Cindy Titze.
