She is a Senior at Briggsdale Undivided High School and is in volleyball, basketball, FFA and FCCLA (Family Community and Career Leaders of America).

She is planning to attend Kansas State University in Manhattan, KS studying to get her degree in Animal Science so she can become a veterinarian. Her whole life she has always had a compassion for making sure other and animals are taken well cared for. In the industry that she wants to go into she will be working with people who are either upset or mad because their animal is sick or injured. The animal will be have to be put first as well as their emotions. When treating an animal, you want to find the cause of why the sick/injured are injured and fix it as fast as possible to prevent them from getting worse. Her main treatments are livestock, therapy, and chiropractic. Since it is her last year in high school, Samantha has been looking into colleges that fit her the best and for the career she wants to go into. At the beginning of her senior year, she investigated three colleges: Wyoming State University, West Texas A&M, and Kansas State University. Looking into all three of them there was one that caught her eye. She visited it once and fell in love with it when she went there for a visit. The college that she chose was Kansas State University. Kansas State has an amazing ag program, and the people were very polite there when she went. Since she was so interested in Kansas, Samantha put in an application to see if she could get excepted in. The night of her senior homecoming she got mail from Kansas. She opened it up to find that she had been accepted. In conclusion, Samantha is ready to take her next step into an adventure to see where it leads her to. To finish her high school and 4-H career with a heart full of gratitude. She couldn't be prouder of how far she has come as a person with her studies and livestock. She has had so much help and patience from others when she was in a bad mood or had a bad show day. To the people who have given their knowledge that they have accompanied over the years in their field of work, thank you everyone who has helped her become the person I am today. Overall, Samantha is so grateful for all the people that have been helping her very step of the way, without them she would not have learned what she knows without them. To the next step of her life, she is excited to see what she will do to keep on learning new things all the time.

Samantha is the recipient of the Weld County 4-H Foundation Scholarship.
