I grew up on a small family farm raising my own sheep herd as well as helping with the family feedlot of 2,000 head of cattle and raising corn and soybeans. Since coming to Iowa State, FarmHouse has helped me grow in many different areas and has really helped make my college experience all I hoped it could be and more.
I’ve had the pleasure of being involved in many activities at Iowa State–both on campus and within FarmHouse. I served as the recruitment chair, which turned out to be a great way for me to grow as a person and give back to my chapter. FarmHouse has also helped shape my studies and future plans. I would like to attend graduate school and somewhere down the road, I’d like to work as a professor and researcher and get involved in politics for the sake of agriculture.
Thank you for all of your support of FarmHouse Fraternity, especially to provide this scholarship. I am honored and so grateful to receive it. Scholarships like this serve as yet another reminder of why I love FarmHouse so much.
