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

I am excited to meet new people while attending UW-Platteville, especially those that I share common interests with. I come from a typical small town with little diversity, where everybody seems to know everybody. While I am proud of my background, I look forward to having the opportunity to branch out and experience new things. I have always enjoyed being involved with organizations and charities, and I am eager to see all of the various activities and programs that UW-Platteville has to offer. The thought of going off to college can be intimidating, but I know that attending UW-Platteville is the right choice and that I will enjoy my time there and make the most of it.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

Growing up on a farm and being very active in the Mauston FFA Chapter, agriculture has become my passion and number one interest. I enjoy working in and advocating for agriculture. My favorite hobby is raising sheep to show at both the state and county fair. I also enjoy running cross country and track and field. I have had many opportunities to travel during the last four years through various organizations, and I have come to find that traveling is also something that I really enjoy and hope to do more of in the future. I love to experience new cultures and scenery.

Kadence's Thank You Note

I would like to express my sincerest thank you to the donors of the Mauston High School Community Scholarship. Your generous support for my post-secondary education is my driving force to excel and achieve my goals so that I may become a successful leader. I realize that there will be many challenges that I will face in college and in working towards my goals, but I believe with your support I will be able to overcome adversity and move forward. You can trust that I will continue to work hard to assure that your donation is a wise investment. Again, I thank you very much for your donation and encouragement to further my education.
