Whom do you want to thank?

I would like to thank my family and friends for all of their support throughout my time at NC State.  I would also like to thank my wonderful professors for their outstanding instruction and Dr. Lynn Worley-Davis for being an excellent advisor.

What is the best thing about studying at NC State and the Agricultural Institute?

The best thing about the Ag. Institute is the hands-on approach they take when it comes to educating their students.  Everything is taught with a practical approach and the instructors are dedicated to giving the students every opportunity to learn and get their hands dirty.  The small classroom setting also allows teachers and students to get to know each other on a more personal basis and that only enhances the learning experience.

My Academic Advisor:

Dr. Lynn Worley-Davis

Hometown and Homestate:

Pembroke, NC
