Sierra Tichnell

Funds raised through the Animal and Food Sciences Reunion Silent Auction support the Animal and Food Sciences Alumni Scholarship. This year that scholarship was awarded to Sierra Tichnell, a senior majoring in Animal Sciences. Sierra’s enthusiasm for animal agricultural started at young age as she was a member of the Maple Mountain 4-H club, showing sheep in her home state of Maryland. Since arriving at the University of Kentucky in 2019 Sierra has been involved in many clubs associated with the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. This academic year Sierra is serving as President of Ag Student Council, President of the Pre-Vet Club and Vice President of the Block and Bridle Club. She will graduate from the University of Kentucky in May 2022 and plans on attending veterinary school to pursue a career as a large animal vet.
