Thank you endlessly for your continued support as I embark on my undergraduate journey. Because of your extremely generous donation, I am able to continue my education and do so in a much less stressful manner. I am excited to show my support in reciprocation at future Targeting Excellence events!
As a third-year student, my collegiate career is over halfway over, but the amount of experiences and characteristics that I have acquired in these last few years is incredible. I have been, and will continue to be a heavily involved individual, taking on many roles within various student organizations while also maintaining a full-time job to pay for my education without debt. These roles within the student organizations have developed into leadership positions, being on the executive committee, and serving as a role model to other students. While it isn’t always easy, it has without a doubt always been worth it. I also think that as a collective whole, my collegiate experiences and responsibilities are preparing me for my future career as a medical professional in the agricultural industry. When all is said and done, I want to earn my DVM and possibly a PhD or Masters in Embryology. I want to primarily work with cattle, but I am open to other food animals as well. Becoming a member of the OSU CVM Early Commitment Program has proven and solidified my commitment to the industry and I am eager to be a contributing professional. I have learned that I really enjoy learning about herd medicine and management, reproductive technologies, and problem-solving. As one might imagine, achieving these titles will not be cheap, and debt will likely temporarily acquire. My goal is to remain debt-free as long as possible. Receiving a scholarship for my undergraduate portion of my education would mean that I can spend less time at work, and more time dedicated to my studies so that I can give myself the best chance for success. This support, to me, would be priceless.
