Thank you so much to the Targeting Excellence sponsors, board of directors, and committees. This scholarship will help me finish my degree at Penn State, something that I had always dreamed of doing but never thought I’d actually be able to accomplish. I am honored to have been selected for the scholarship and to be a part of the animal agriculture industry.
Hometown: Spring Grove, PA
School: Pennsylvania State University
Major / Species: Animal Science
Career Goals: My career goals are to attend veterinary school and become a large animal veterinarian after my time at Penn State. I hope to work with farmers and their livestock to better their lives and the animal production industry. Having grown up on a small family farm, I decided at a young age that I wanted to be able to help farmers like my family members. Being at Penn State has gotten me one step closer to that dream. I am currently a junior in the Animal Science major, placing my focus on cattle where I am gaining valuable tools for the rest of my life as part of the industry.
