I am honored to be the recipient of the Targeting Excellence Scholarship! Your generous contribution has allowed me to pursue my undergraduate degree at the Pennsylvania State University. The donations that are generously given help to ease the financial stress of secondary education. I will use the knowledge, skills, and expertise I gain during my time at Penn State to contribute to the Agricultural community after graduation. Thank you again for your support of my academic pursuits!
My future goals are to pursue a job in Agriculture, specifically in Animal Science. I am looking to graduate Penn State University in 2024 with the major of Animal Science and minor in Ag Business.. My major career goals are to work within the sheep reproduction technology field. This will allow me to work closely with technology such as artificial insemination and embryo transfer. Another one of my goals is to help my mother turn her lamb program into one of the best in the state. I have watched my mother put her blood sweat and tears into this so it would be one of my greatest accomplishments. My leadership abilities, my public speaking abilities, and my interview skills are all testament to the clubs that I have been apart of like Block and Bridle and CCW. These organizations helped to develop me into the leader that I am today. I always want to thank these organizations for the special place they hold in my heart and the huge effect that they have had on me over the years. I cannot wait to start a job that will allow me to give back to the industry that has blessed me with many life altering lessons and experiences. I also want to continue to support and expand the reach of agriculture and help to promote the positive impacts that agriculture has on our country and the world.
