Thank you so much for supporting students who are studying the agriculture industry! Without you, our impact as young agriculturalists would not be as large. Thanks to your contributions, the future is bright for the industry we all love and will continue to grow stronger every day!

Career Goals:

Entering my Freshman year at Morehead State, I was an agriculture education major and had every intention of one day becoming a high school ag teacher. In one of my courses, I was required to complete classroom observation hours. It didn’t take long for me to decide that being a teacher may not be my calling once I began observing. I determined that my heart truly belonged to the livestock industry, so I switched my major to animal science to pursue my passion for livestock. Along with switching my major, I also had to change my career plans as well. To be completely honest, I am still not sure what I would like to do after I graduate college, but I do have a couple options I am looking at. I am considering working for the Ohio Cattlemen’s Association or the Ohio Beef Council, and I am also considering working on the production side of things as well.
