I want to send a huge thank you to the Targeting Excellence Sponsors, Board and Committees for awarding me this scholarship. This scholarship will help me pursue my dream of becoming a livestock veterinarian. Breeding, raising and showing livestock all throughout my youth has given me a huge insight on the problems and struggles in the livestock industry, especially those of which my community had faced. My community lacks a large animal/livestock veterinarian, making it harder and more expensive to raise livestock in my area. This scholarship will help me pursue my passion of the livestock industry to later help my community. The Sponsors, Board and Committees of the TE scholarship will forever have my gratitude as without this scholarship, pursuing this career would have been extremely difficult.
I plan to be a livestock veterinarian. After I obtain my degree, I will hopefully be coming back to my community, Hocking County, to open up a vet clinic. On top of running a livestock vet clinic, I plan to raise and sell both club lambs and Boer goats.
