I would like to personally thank Targeting Excellence and their sponsors for awarding me with this scholarship. I understand the process must have been difficult and I am greatly appreciative of this opportunity. Any scholarship, no matter the amount, will assist me with my educational and career goals by removing financial barriers. I would also like to thank Targeting Excellence and the sponsors for their continued support to the agricultural industry. It is with the hard work and dedication of people like you that keep the younger generations, like myself, eager to pursue this field of work. Once again, I would like to say thank you for awarding me with this scholarship and that I am extremely grateful for the consideration. I will use this chance to give back to the industry that has given so much to me.
As of now, I plan to work in a career in the beef industry where I can interact with producers or consumers. Through my experiences, I’ve learned the importance of building relationships. I wish to be a resource for producers so they can get the most from their operation, as well as an outlet of information for those who are simply customers at a grocery store. All things considered, I have spent my life within the agriculture industry and plan to use my future career to make a significant impact on it. I am inspired to achieve these career goals because of my passion for the industry that feeds the world. It has touched my life in many ways and I want to support so it can continue to do so for others and generations to come.
