Aggie of the Month: Heather Williams
Major: Natural Resources Management, Conservation track; Classification: Junior; Age: 22; Organization: Society for Conservation Biology; Hometown: New Braunfels; Month: March 2013
- Reason why you came to Texas Tech: When I was growing up, Kliff Kingsbury was my next door neighbor. I was in sixth grade his senior year playing football for Texas Tech and my family always watched his games. Because I looked up to him so much, Tech was always in my mind as a college I'd like to attend.
- Favorite thing about Texas Tech: I love the location. I'm just a young lady looking for herself in the wide open spaces of the Texas plains.
- Favorite thing about CASNR: The outstanding faculty and countless opportunities for student involvement. Specifically within my department, I've enjoyed Fall quail covey counts through Quail-Tech Alliance, wildland firefighter training through Student Association for Fire Ecology, and trips to our native rangeland and research areas.
- Career Goals: Restoration ecologist, conducting research then making and implementing plans on how to restore degraded ecosystems. I'm also interested in the communication-education side of conservation science.
- What does the honor of being an Aggie of the Month mean to you? When I first switched majors into this college I was hesitant to put myself out there and get involved. Tackling that initial shyness and becoming an active member with NRM organizations has been really rewarding.
