Lynsey is a very active student and keeps busy with a number of extracurricular activities. She is a member of Sigma Alpha Professional Sorority, Collegiate 4-H, Farm Credit Scholars Program, Food Science Club, and the Honors Ambassadors program.
Lynsey chose to be a part of the CHP because she was interested in taking honors courses that would really challenge her. Lynsey is a firm believer in always pushing oneself to be even better, rather than taking the easy way out. Lynsey’s favorite part of the CHP has been working on her Honors Thesis because she thinks it has prepared her well for graduate school. She is excited to present her research in San Francisco at the American Chemical Society National Meeting as part of an Undergraduate Research Competition.
Lynsey’s favorite experience in college was getting to study abroad in Jamaica during a summer mini-term. While there, she learned about agriculture in Jamaica and how it differs from agriculture in the United States. Lynsey thinks about this experience often and knows it is something she will never forget. Lynsey is currently raising chickens in her backyard. She has four laying hens and plans to eventually have even more livestock! In the future, Lynsey hopes to continue to be an advocate for agriculture and work in an agricultural field.
