Dylan Davidson, a senior agricultural communications major from Childress, has been named Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources' March 'Matador of the Month.
"To me, Matador of the Month always showed students in CASNR that not only try their best academically, but they also strive to represent CASNR and Texas Tech in a positive way," Davidson said. "Recipients of this award are always outstanding students that have a passion to be involved in CASNR and to be nominated and win this award is an honor."
Davidson said that he chose to be a part of Ag Council because they get students involved in CASNR and agricultural organizations. He said these can help students develop leadership abilities and provide them opportunities to represent themselves and CASNR positively.
Davidson said he thinks the staff and faculty in CASNR are the best. He said they care about students' successes and make the effort to provide their students with any and every resource they could need.
"They have all helped me grow as a professional and have given me every opportunity to succeed in everything I have been involved in," Davidson said. "Everyone in this university at every level wants to see students succeed and to represent Texas Tech in their professional careers."
Davidson said he chose agricultural communications because it provides him the classes
and opportunities to improve his ability to communicate about the agricultural industry
to the public.
"I feel that it is up to agriculturalists to teach the public about our industry and this major provides the best opportunities for that," Davidson said.
After graduation, Davidson said he plans to serve in the military and join the Navy as an officer.
