What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?
I'm hoping to have a lot of fun and also learn while doing so. I want to leave with all the knowledge and experience I need to be very successful and acquire the dreams that I have. I want to be involved in all extra activities that involve my major so that I can incorporate my knowledge into a real life situation. Im also excited to see what UW Platteville offers for different clubs because I would love to get involved to do fun things and have new encounters with new people and make new acquaintances. I want to get involved with organizations that offer community services so that I can give back to my community for giving me the opportunity to experience life the way I am. I will most definitely be involved in Intramural sports such as baseball, basketball,and others. Most importantly I am most excited to leave college with experiences of a lifetime and friends that will always be by my side.
What interests and/or hobbies do you have?
My biggest hobby is work in all different aspects. I am a construction worker during the week and love learning new things everyday about my acquired field. On the weekends I am usually caught working on something on the family farm. I am a construction worker as well as a crop farmer and I love doing both and staying super busy. When I am not working I am usually either hunting deer, turkey, pheasants etc... on the farm or fishing/ice-fishing off the Mississippi River. I love doing things to help the family or friends out as well such as cooking for my family, cutting firewood for my Grandpa, helping my friends work on their vehicles, and just putting a smile on someone's face everyday of my life.
Trevor's Thank You Note
I am extremely appreciative of whoever donates money for my education. I can only say thank yo for your recognition of the youth and their education. I can promise you that your money will not be wasted and I will use it to be the best that I can be and do good for my community whether it be constructing a homeless shelter or constructing a large city hospital. Someday I will make a difference and I thank you for giving me the opportunity.
