I recently graduated 9th in my class at Field High School with a 3.941 GPA.  While in high school I was a member of the National Honor Society, the treasurer of the Student Council, Student Liaison to the Superintendent, a Post-Secondary Student at Kent State University, and ran for 4 years on the Cross Country and Track teams.  I was also a Buckeye Boys State Delegate in the summer of 2014 where I served as the Director of Agriculture.  I show Market Hogs, Market Steers, and Market Goats at the fair.  I am also a member of the Junior Fair Board and a 4-H Camp Counselor.  This fall I will be attending The Ohio State University majoring in Radiological Science and Therapy.  My goal is to become a Pediatric Radiologist so that I can help children to live to a better future.

I graduated from Aurora High School and will be attending The Ohio State University in the fall.  My goals are to major in Animal Sciences, earn a D.V.M. in vet school, and then work my way from practicing vet medicine in a well established practice to practicing in a facility of my own.  These are all achievements I know I will one day make, however, thus far some of my achievements already made have included:  graduating with Honors, receiving a varsity letter in orchestra, academics, and swimming.  I also earned various outstanding student awards and maintained a 4.0 or above in order to be recognized as Summa Cum Laude.

I graduated from Aurora High School and will be attending the State University of New York (SUNY) at Fredonia starting in the fall to earn a Biology degree.  I hope to gain as much research experience as possible to prepare me for my undergraduate work as well as to become a veterinarian.  I am currently looking to work with small animals, but am still open-minded to other areas of veterinary medicine as well.  Some of my past achievements include being a member of the National Honor Society, Member and President of the Local 4-H Club, and a member of the Junior Fairboard.  I received 1st place in Portage County and Honorable Mention in the State of Ohio for my 4-H Self-Determined Project.  I also received the Outstanding Academic Achievement Award in Sciences of Anatomy and Physiology, as well as Science Olympiad Ohio State Qualifiers participating in dynamic planet, forensics, and forestry.

I recently graduated from Southeast High School and will be attending Ohio State ATI in Wooster in the fall.  I plan on pursuing a degree in Beef Livestock Production and Management.  My goals are to get a degree, buy a farm to raise beef and breeding cattle, and someday as I see farmers helping other farmers now, I would like to help when I can.  I am a member of the FFA and 4-H Club.  Some of my achievements include being inducted in the National Honor Society, receiving a Star Chapter Farmer Award for Southeast FFA, and receiving a Perfect Attendance Award at Southeast High School.
