By: Hannah Harken
Name: Weston Cleveland; Major: Animal Science, Pre-Veterinarian; Classification: Junior, Organization: Pre-Vet Society; Hometown: Boerne; Month: September
Weston Cleveland, a junior Animal Science major from Boerne, has been named Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Ag Council's September Aggie of the Month. Cleveland said it was an honor to be recognized as the Aggie of the Month with how many talented, intelligent, and dedicated students there are within CASNR.
"There are so many of us who deserve this recognition and who play crucial roles in agriculture at Texas Tech," said Cleveland.
Cleveland has set a goal of having a career as an equine or large animal veterinarian. After graduation, he plans to continue his education at the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine. Cleveland said, "Where I go from there is still a mystery, but as long as I am working hands on with animals and helping them, I think I will be happy anywhere."
Techs's Department of Animal and Food Sciences was a driving force behind Cleveland's decision to be a student at Texas Tech. Along with the department, he said the family-like environment made him feel welcome, and that he felt like his classmates had the same goals of working hard and having fun along the way.
"Being a member of CASNR doesn't just mean you share interests with your fellow classmates, it means you are part of a family that only wishes the best for you," Cleveland said. "Along with having strong classmate relationships, you build lifelong friendships to help you through any obstacle while setting yourself up for future success."
