Thank you for your generous support of the Targeting Excellence Scholarships. It is because of people like you that students can keep learning about the food animal industry and how to keep it moving forward. This is also extra helpful to me because I am paying for my own education and it is hard to be a full-time student and make enough money to pay for college.

Career Goals:

At The Ohio State University, I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture, majoring in Animal Sciences and in Agribusiness. I am a current employee of the Animal Science Department’s Ruminant Nutrition Laboratory and plan to work all four years while I am striving for my degree. I am a part of the Buckeye Dairy Club and the Poultry Science Club. I am also active in the St. Thomas More Newman Center, where I attend Sunday service and participate in a bible study. After college, I would like to get a position either in an animal feed company or in a research laboratory attending to research animals. I am interested in a research lab because I enjoy working in the Ruminant Nutrition Lab and would like the opportunity to work in a setting like that for my career. I am also interested in working for an animal feed company because I enjoy animal nutrition and getting to figure out what nutrition combinations give the animals maximum efficiency.
