importance and benefits of good nutrition. An
benefit from good
nutrition too? I thought cattle ate grass?
It is common knowledge within
the Adrian community for seniors in high school
to complete senior project as a graduation
requirement. The purpose of the course is to
help seniors search out career interests and
possibilities—and hopefully, giving them a head
start in life after high school.
Entering senior project,
Morgan Bayes had a plan and a goal—agriculture.
Morgan is very interested in
Agriculture and loves to learn everything she
can about it. She is also interested in the
sciences behind it. This is why she chose cattle
nutrition as her main career. Her second career
choice is veterinary medicine.
Morgan is also very
athletic; participating in many sports including
volleyball, basketball, and track. She says she
would love to coach, choosing that as her third

students must complete a certain amount
of Job shadows in their chosen
careers.Morgan job shadowed Preform X,
the Chamberlain Dairy, the Nyssa High
school coaches, and the Vale Vet Clinic.
The Vale Vet Clinic was
Morgan’s favorite job shadow. She said the place
was very easygoing and had a calm atmosphere.

that these people have given her, along with
everyone else that has helped her with her
Morgan has decided that she
does not intend to pursue her chosen career, or
her secondary career. After her job shadows and
researching these fields she has come to realize
that they do not possess the work environment
she wishes to have. She does wish to coach on
the side but not as a main career for her.
College is something that
Morgan is planning to attend, along with running
track at whichever one she goes to. As of yet
she is undecided on where or which college she
wants to go to. Her advice to the underclassmen
would be to apply early for college and complete
their applications well before the deadline. It
will make it easier for them in the long run.
