The Joyce Farms Poultry Science Scholarship was established in 2007 to support students pursuing careers in agricultural science at NC State University.
Each year, students from the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences submit applications and essays for consideration. One outstanding applicant is selected to receive $1,000 from Joyce Farms to help fund his or her education.
It’s a difficult task to choose just one from our many qualified candidates. We consider academic standing, past achievements, and demonstrated passion, skill, and determination.
This year, we are pleased to announce Ray Borzotra as the 2016-17 recipient of the Joyce Farms Poultry Science Scholarship!
Ray moved to North Carolina during his senior year of high school just to study at NC State University after graduation. Now he is enrolled and living his dream, pursuing both an Animal Science and a Poultry Science degree. Ray has a particular passion for veterinary science. After high school graduation (where he graduated 21st in his class), he spent his summer shadowing a local vet. After college, Ray plans to either continue studying large and small animal veterinary medicine at NC State Veterinary School of Medicine or work at a local poultry farm.
Congratulations and best of luck to Ray and all of our impressive applicants!
