Thank you so much for this incredible opportunity! I look forward to using this scholarship towards furthering my education in our beloved animal production industry. You have provided me with so many more awesome educational opportunities, and I am forever grateful! Thank you for your generosity and kindness!
This summer, I will be doing an internship with either the USDA or a company called Where Food Comes From; I have not yet made the decision of which one I am going to accept. Within the next 5 years, I hope to have graduated from Penn State with a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science, business and animal management option, and a minor in agribusiness management. With this degree, I hope and plan to acquire a job with a leading animal agriculture business, where I will be able to put my knowledge and passion for the industry to good use. I would like to put my strong organizational and planning skills to good use as well, so I feel as though I would thrive in a business management position so that I can keep things running smoothly. I also plan to develop a large professional network to consult with others in the industry. Finally, I would like to continuously further my education so that I will always be in the know on new information and have the ability to be flexible in this industry. This may include getting certifications, credentials, and even a master’s degree.
