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

I am most excited about experiencing all the different groups and organizations that the University of Wisconsin-Platteville has to offer its students. I look forward to being involved in extra-curricular activities related to my major and the Platteville community. I am also excited about the classes in my major and meeting new friends that have the same background and agricultural interests that I do.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

My interests and hobbies include animals and sports, two very different areas. I love working with animals through my pet care business, KL Pet Care, and from living on a farm. I enjoy having and caring for small companion animals. I am especially passionate about my dairy animals and farming. I enjoy showing cattle on the county, district and state levels. Sports are also really fun for me to watch and play. I can watch about any sport and I am an avid fan of our Wisconsin teams. I look forward to being a Pioneer fan! I also enjoy golfing, having been on our high school golf team all four years.  

Katherine's Thank You Note

Dear Donors, thank you for the scholarship. I am honored to be selected for this scholarship because being involved in my community has always been important to me. I appreciate being recognized for that involvement. I look forward to being involved in the University of Wisconsin-Platteville campus community. Community involvement has been a part of my upbringing and I hope to give back to others because of many adult leaders, teachers, and volunteers who have mentored and helped me along the way. Thank you again for honoring me with this scholarship.

Shana's Thank You Note

Thank you for choosing me as the Viroqua Community Scholarship recipient. This scholarship is greatly appreciated. I am planning to major in biology and eventually become a physical therapist. I am very excited to attend the University of Wisconsin-Platteville as it is my father's alma mater. He is excited for me also. I cannot wait to get involved on the campus and become a Pioneer.
