Thank you so much for the opportunity to have this scholarship once again. I have had a wonderful first year at NC State and I look forward to taking more poultry science classes next year.
I had chosen Poultry Science as my major at North Carolina State University last semester, and this was definitely the best choice for me. Just from being in the classroom, it is easy to see that I have an interest in this field of work. Not only is going to these types of classes enjoyable but it makes me want to continue to learn more about the industry. I hope to graduate from NC State University with a bachelor’s degree in Poultry Science and a Minor in FeedMill Management
However, before even being in a college classroom I was already interested in the FeedMill industry. I have been on multiple tours of large commercial FeedMills around North Carolina and this has helped me come to a decision to pursue this as a career. Multiple camps that I have been to over the past summers have also been a great factor in narrowing down what I want to do in college and after. Lastly, my parents were also a great help in figuring out what I want to do. My father was an amazing help in getting me in contact with people in the industry, so I was able to have more experience and knowledge about different agricultural industries. Overall as of now, my goal is to continue to pursue a career in the FeedMilling industry, I believe based on my knowledge and skills this would be the best fit for me.
