“Personable,” “mature ” and “focused” are all accurate words to describe senior Brady Schreibvogel.
“I approach my Academics like it is a job. I feel that the harder I work to better myself now; the better off I will by when I move on after college,” he describes.
This Agri-Business major from Keensburg, Colorado takes advantage of the opportunities he has here at Adams State day-in and day-out.
“Brady is focused on his education as a whole, bringing skills and knowledge together in term papers and projects that satisfy his quest for learning instead of limiting himself to topics that might be easier done,” says Professor of Business Zena Buser, Ph.D., who nominated Schreibvogel.
This semester, Schreibvogel is taking four courses consisting of Fundamentals of Income Taxation, Light Physics, a wrestling class, and Agri-Marketing.
Though he has a great number of quality attributes, Schreibvogel would consider his “competitiveness” to be his strongest one. In addition to his studies, this scholar is also a member of the Adams State Track and Field Team, where he participates in throwing events such as hammer throw, shot put, and discus throw.
Schreibvogel explains, “I actually use being on the track team to help me be more productive. I try to develop a routine that starts with class every morning and the leads into practice and, after that, homework and studying.”
This student-athlete is one of the four Adams State recipients of the National Western College Scholarship, a select scholarship for those involved in Agri-Business and Agri-Science. This award requires that he participate in the National Western during the annual January Stock Show (showing, judging, volunteer program, Westernaires, sanctioned 4-H/FFA) project, or entering and competing in an event for which preparation and training are necessary. In addition, Schreibvogel must take part in shows held at the National Western at times other than the actual January Show dates for each specific year. Finally, he must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA to remain in the program. (Courtesy of NationalWester.com/collegescholarships.)
Those who know Schreibvogel and see the way he carries himself are optimistic about his life post-ASC.
Dr. Buser adds,“I am very impressed with Brady’s maturity, focus, and commitment to planning the career he desires. He is an admirable student, has been a strong individual in the ASC agribusiness program, and will be a valuable addition to the agricultural industry upon graduation.”
