I am most excited about going to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville next year because of the new experiences, new classes, and new people. I also get to take a step further in my life and learn what I truly want to do in life.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I am interested in learning about animals and working with animals. I enjoy showing my dairy cattle, as well as hunting and fishing. I also like to play football; mainly, I love just being outside, doing outside activities.

What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

I am super excited to be finally starting on my future by learning about a career I have had planned since I was in fifth grade. Also, I am excited to meet new people that have the same passions as I do. I believe this college experience at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville will be a life changing one.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I love to play sports as well as coach them. I am also an avid carpenter and a handy-man. I work more with my hands then my head usually.

Nathan's Thank You Note

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to this generous monetary donation. Not only have you given to me in a way that was needed most, you have also given to me in a way that will impact me more. You have relieved much of my stress by awarding me this scholarship. Please do note how grateful I am for everyone who not only donates to me, but to everyone who receives this scholarship. What scholarships have the power to send a kid to college with less on their mind. That is simply amazing to me. So thank you from the bottom of my heart and God Bless.
