We have some fresh faces around Food For Thought these days - we held a membership drive in August and September and have some great new minds who are excited about agriculture among our ranks! Periodically, you'll see their bios here so that you can get to know them. This post is about new member Alex Moran, a first year student at the College of Veterinary Medicine here at K-State.
Hi guys! My name is Alex Moran and I’m a first year veterinary medical student here at Kansas State University. I’m originally from Hays, Kansas and have spent the past three years as an undergrad at K-State studying animal science. After I’m done with what seems like a ridiculous about of schooling, I want to own a mixed animal practice in Kansas (even though cats and dogs are my true loves). The past few years, I’ve been very involved with my sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and working for K-State’s New Student Services. Other than that I really love spending time with the people I love, country music, a good book, rain, Kansas, and most importantly my cat, Bear. I do not have an extensive agriculture background, other than growing up in Western Kansas and a farming brother-in-law. I do, however, know just how vital agriculture is to each and every person in the world. I am excited to grow in my knowledge this year in Food for Thought and I look forward to sharing that experience with all of you throughout the year :)
