Thank you to all Targeting Excellence sponsors, board, and committees for awarding me this scholarship. This award will greatly help me as I continue my education with plans to become a veterinarian. Thank you for you support!
My personal career goals will take many years of hard work and dedication to achieve but I am confident I will achieve them. I am currently attending Penn State University majoring in Animal Science-Science option. Upon achieving my bachelor’s degree, I plan to further my education to receive my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine. Upon graduation from vet school, I plan to be a mixed animal practitioner in the Midwest where I will see a wide variety of calls and help hone my veterinary skills. I then plan to return home to my family farm in Somerset, PA and hopefully purchase the mixed animal clinic and continue to be a mixed animal practitioner while farming on the side and raising a family.
