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

I am very excited to attend the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and I can’t wait to meet new people, to participate in many clubs, and to have the opportunity to travel. I am very excited to live in the dorms and to meet my roommate. I also plan to join many clubs such as the Pioneer Dairy Club and to be active wherever I can. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to travel and to study abroad. I can't wait to meet all of the new people and to start this new chapter in my life!

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Agriculture is my biggest interest. I am active in the Lancaster FFA, 4-H, and the Grant County Junior Holstein Association. I show my registered dairy cattle at many shows all over Wisconsin, and I have won many awards and honors. I also compete in Dairy Quiz Bowl, and my team will be competing at Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky this coming fall. The dairy industry and agriculture are my two biggest interests, and I will be majoring in Animal Science while at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville with a pre-veterinary intent.

Adrianna's Thank You Note

I am writing to thank you for your generous Lancaster High School Community scholarship. I am an Animal Science major with a possible minor in Spanish, and with the intent of pre-veterinary medicine. I plan to pursue a career as a large animal veterinarian once I graduate from college. After my first four years at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, I will be attending another four-year program to complete my degree, possibly at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Thanks to you, I am one step closer to that goal.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Cody's Thank You Note

Thank you the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and the donors so much for your donation. This scholarship was no small amount and it would have taken me a long time to earn the same amount of money through working. I am grateful that I was able to receive this money to benefit my education and to further reduce the weight on my shoulders in terms of debt.

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

I'm looking forward to meeting new people the most of all while attending the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I am excited to utilize the fitness center, and I hope to get involved in a yoga club! I can't wait to attend a college choir rehearsal and work with amazing musicians. Choir is my favorite class in high school, so I can only imagine that it will be better in college.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Music is my passion; I love when I am offered to sing in church. I have taken up guitar and more recently I have become increasingly interested in learning to play piano. Lately I have also become really interested in living a healthy lifestyle, and inspiring my friends and family to eat right and exercise as well.

Elizabeth's Thank You Note

I dearly thank you for supporting my future education. I come from a middle class family where we all work very hard, for very little money. I cannot thank you enough for giving me this opportunity. Thank you

Jena's Thank You Note

Thank you, the donors, for your generosity in making the Lancaster High School Community Scholarship possible. I greatly appreciate your support. I am looking forward to attending the University of Wisconsin-Platteville this fall and I am planning to major in Elementary Education. Experiencing first-hand the positive impact one can have on a child is absolutely priceless, and it continues to reinforce my career choice of becoming an elementary education teacher. I am looking forward to making a difference in the lives of many. The financial assistance that you have provided will be of great help to me with paying my educational expenses, and it will allow me to concentrate more of my time on studying.  Thank you again for your generosity and support.

nathan holzinger

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

Platteville has felt like my second home, because I was a part of the high school co-op soccer team and prior to that, I was a part of club soccer teams.  With what Platteville has done and meant to me, I look forward to giving back to the community.  

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Sports has been a dominate part of my life, and has taught me to be strong and to be a team player. Above all, sports have shown me how to do what is needed to succeed.

Nathan's Thank You Note

I would like to thank you very much for awarding me the Lancaster High School community scholarship.  This is appreciated more than you know.
