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

It is hard to believe I will soon be graduating and starting a new chapter in my life.  I am ready to concentrate on my future by attending the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and pursuing a degree in Construction Management and Safety this fall.  Ever since I was young, I have been interested in making and designing things.  I took Industrial Technology classes at Royall High School, and I enjoyed every minute of it, which confirmed my passion and interest in pursuing a career in construction.  I am also excited to meet new people, get involved in clubs, and participate in intramural sports.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

My interests and hobbies include: following and watching sports, playing basketball, football, baseball, sand volleyball, golfing, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, and hanging out with friends.  I also like designing and creating wood projects, and working on our friend's farms, overall, just staying busy and active!

Trace's Thank You Note

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the University of Wisconsin-Platteville Foundation for the generous scholarship.  I am greatly honored and humbled to receive this award.  It will be put to good use as I work hard to achieve my academic goals.  A great weight has been lifted knowing that I will be able to graduate with less debt.  My family and I are very appreciative for this scholarship. Thanks again!
