Renee first became involved in FOCUS back in Fall 2013 at Collin College where she quickly felt a part of the family of hooligans there. She later graduated from UTA in 2018 with the longest degree name (B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Human Behavior and Intercultural Communications with a minor in Psychology). Renee is excited to continue on the SMU team for the 2024-2025 school year!

Taylor Bass

Campus Missionary

Taylor graduated from UT Arlington with a degree in Marketing & Management. Having spent his entire life in Arlington, he now calls Dallas his home. First starting his journey working with FOCUS full-time as a pastoral apprentice at UT Dallas, he now helps pastor our community at SMU. Taylor is passionate about the relationship of apologetics and genuine, sacrificial friendship in showing people Jesus and the fullness of life he brings. These were the 2 biggest things that cemented Taylor’s faith as he wrestled with God in college. Taylor also loves disc-golf, board games, and flexing his magic tricks.
