Each week, we will showcase one of our CAHNRS Ambassadors, a student leadership organization that encourages students to pursue higher education and serves as a liaison between the college and the greater community. This week, we’re featuring Megan Miller, a sophomore from Buckley, Wash.
What are you studying?
I’m majoring in Agricultural Education.
What is a fun fact about you?
I had the opportunity to represent Washington FFA at the 2015 National Agriculture Day in Washington, DC and meet Representative Dan Newhouse after a committee hearing. He awarded us a copy of the Congressional Record talking about National FFA week and the positive impact it makes on students’ lives.
I’m land-grant loyal and love my agriculture – WSU had the small town feel, yet it has state, national, and even global community support systems. GO COUGS!
What is special about being a CAHNRS Coug?
What is so special about being a CAHNRS Coug is that you can be friends with not only people in your major, but those throughout the college from every discipline. Our diversity makes us one-of-a-kind; after all, our strength lies in our differences, not our similarities. We are dedicated and passionate about our education, but also our CAHNRS home. We are family here!
Where do you want to be (professionally or personally) 10 years after you graduate?
I would love to have my own agri-tourism farm, where I bridge the knowledge gap between farm to fork and bringing people back to the farm. I will have something for every season: harvest festival, Christmas trees, flowers, or events!
Favorite class you have taken within CAHNRS so far? Why?
Animal Science 101 was a blast! Martin Maquivar makes the class fun, engaging, and welcoming – and he throws his jokes in at points. Most of all, I love the labs where you get the one-on-one hands-on experience with the animals.
What other extracurricular activities have you been involved in?
Agriculture Future of America, WSU Equestrian Team, Young Farmers & Ranchers, Agricultural Education/Collegiate FFA
