Thank you for your donation of time, energy, and money to allow the Targeting Excellence Scholarship to take place. I am sincerely honored to have received the scholarship and will be constantly reminded of your generosity while I work to complete my degree.
During my time at Penn State, I intend to gain the knowledge and skills required for me to be able to succeed and help the animal agriculture industry. I believe that I am achieving this goal through my career-oriented clubs and engaging classroom experience. Specifically, I would like to pursue a career in the poultry industry and obtain a job as a service tech and eventually working my way into a manager position. I am interested in laying hens and egg production but I am open to explore this broad industry. I want to work for a company that will continue to teach me and encourage me to pursue my goals. During my career in the poultry industry, I intend to continue to work in my original interest in dairy farming. If I am able I intend to continue to milk cows whenever I am available to fill the shifts. Gaining a new passion for poultry has not forced me to abandon my original interests. I believe that I have a lot to offer the agriculture industry and I also have a lot to learn from it. I will take my knowledge that I have gained an advocate and educate my peers and consumers.
