Q&A with Kayla, a Waco campus resident

Kayla at the McLennan County Livestock Show 2012The McLennan County Junior Livestock Show was held last week at the Heart of Texas Coliseum. Methodist Children’s Home had 21 youth show animals this year under the direction of Steve Kruse, vocational education teacher.

Kayla, a resident on the Waco campus, showed a heifer and won second place. She also received a scholarship from the McLennan County Youth Activities Association, Inc.

We sat down with Kayla to hear about this experience.

Q: How has being part of FFA helped you?
A: Being involved with FFA helps me stay close to my roots. I grew up on a farm and have always been around animals. It gives me knowledge and experience. I graduate this year and plan on going to college to be a veterinarian tech. It is who I am; I love animals.

Q: What did receiving a scholarship mean to you?
A: It was touching to receive the Kynadi Buzbee Memorial Scholarship. I hope I can honor this scholarship by doing my best. Many people love their animals. When I am a vet-tech, I want to be able to help them when their animals get sick. Receiving the scholarship funds helps me get closer to my goal.
