My name is Marlee Garner and I am Masters student at the University of Georgia. I am working alongside the Department of Animal Science here at UGA to promote an amazing opportunity for rising high school juniors and seniors and I was wondering if you would
help pass it along.
This summer, June 8th and 9th, the Department of Animal Science here at UGA is offering an opportunity for rising high school juniors and seniors who are interested in pursuing a degree/career in Animal Science and/or Agriculture called
Animal Science in Action. During these two days, students will be able to tour UGA's campus, the Animal Science Department, the new vet school, and some of our various animal facilities around town. Also, there will be a full day of hands on work, where
students will have the opportunity to meet with professors, graduate and undergraduate students, and industry leaders, while learning about some of the hands on animal techniques that we use in the classroom here at UGA. So, the students will be able to work
with horses, pigs, cows, and sheep during the day while interacting with UGA faculty and industry leaders. But, this opportunity is not only for the students. There will also be information sessions about admissions into undergraduate and vet school and financial
aid where both the students and parents can be involved.
Our hope is that students who attend Animal Science in Action come out will a better understanding of what they as students in the Animal Science Department would be doing while in class. Through this we would like to increase awareness about what can be
done with a degree in Animal Science, thus creating the next generation of leaders.
All students have to do to become eligible to participate in this program is submit their application by April 28th.
I have attached a link to the application and a link for an information page about Animal Science in Action for your convenience.
I greatly appreciate your time and hope that you are able to pass this information along to Agriculture Teachers throughout the state in the hopes of spreading the word about this great opportunity.
Please feel free to email or call me if anyone has any questions.
Again thank you so much,
