Thank you so much for your support and dedication to student’s education. As a veterinary student entering the food animal field, we are faced with an ever-increasing student debt. I am extremely grateful for the financial assistance that this scholarship provides. This will help decrease the financial burden from my summer of traveling to different large animal practices, where I get the most of my hands-on learning. Thank you again!
As a food animal focused veterinary student, my career aspirations are to enter the food animal industry and impact those animals that make the ultimate sacrifice to support the human population as well as other fellow animals. I have interned with Tyson Foods exploring the poultry industry, Prestage Farms exploring the swine industry, worked with large animal veterinary practices that have horse and ruminant clients, and assisted a veterinarian caring for the pet pig population. Now towards the end of my second year of veterinary school, my goal is to become a large animal practitioner in rural areas so I can care for all species and types of food animals as well as provide advanced reproductive services.
