2018 BC Angus Scholarship
I am more than privileged to have been awarded the 2018 BC Angus Association Scholarship. The financial support that this scholarship provides, towards the funding of furthering my
education, is very much appreciated. This fall I will be attending the Northern Lights College continuing my education in taking university transfer credit courses, while allowing myself time to decide what I want to do before heading to university.
I grew up on my family farm in Cecil Lake BC raising black Angus cattle. When I was younger I spent multiple years in 4H raising commercial black Angus beef projects. Some of my favourite family memories have been spent with the cows and working on the farm. Even though running an operation with just our family of five can get a little crazy, it brings us together. I always like receiving the associations newsletters, reading about the shows and events. However, I never quite made it to that level with my cows before I fell in love with horse showing. Being a member
of the BC Angus Association gives me a sense of community, where there are many like
minded people to meet. Farming has taught me an abundance of things and has truly given me
deep appreciation for all it takes to make the world go around.
As I get ready to move out and spread my wings I will cherish the things growing up on a farm
has taught me. Leaving to start a life of my own to explore new things is exciting to me. I have
no idea where Iíll end up, but I feel that animals will always be part of my life. Again, I would like
to thank the BC Angus Association for choosing me to be the recipient of their 2018 scholarship.
