Utahns For Nebraska
Dear Utahns For Nebraska:
Thank you so much for the Butch Eckhoff Scholarship that you have offered me. I am a current first-year student at UNL in CASNR (College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources) studying Forensic Science. Along with my schoolwork, I am also working on research looking at mites from Lithuanian mummies. This opportunity allows me to practice my microscopy skills and gain experience using technology that I would not otherwise have access to. This summer, I will be working on research through UNL studying the decomposition of pigs under different conditions. Another activity I am involved in is Out of the Darkness at UNL. Out of the Darkness is a suicide prevention group on campus that hosts an annual walk for suicide prevention. I hold an executive position as the Primary Programmer for the walk on April 7th. We have been working on putting together this community-wide walk and already have over 200 people registered and have raised nearly $5,000 for suicide prevention.
Again, thank you so much for considering and awarding me this scholarship. This contribution is helping me continue my education at UNL and getting my degree in Forensic Science.
