Austin plans on career in veterinary and animal science


Daniel Austin, a junior at White County High School, has a reputation of being a dedicated student and an asset to not only the classes he is enrolled in but also his extracurricular activities.

Austin, who has a 4.0 GPA and is a part of the school’s Veterinary and Animal Science plan of study, is the vice president of the White County FFA chapter as well as being a member of the school’s Beta Club. In addition, he has taken Advanced Placement English Language and Communication, has dual enrollment credits for American History I, and is working toward the same in American History II and Speech.

Austin enjoys the daily work of being on a farm as well as competitions with the FFA and earned the Star-Green Hand Award as a freshman. As a sophomore, he placed second in the district in the extemporaneous speech contest.

“Daniel is a student who has grit, determination, and complete dedication. He is a very bright young man that is not afraid of a challenge. He digs in and works hard to make sure he does excellent work and learns all the needed skills. He is dedicated not only to his academics but also to every organization he is part of,” Kim Eller, a member of White County High School’s faculty and FFA advisor, said of the WCHS junior who has aspirations of becoming a licensed veterinarian one day. “He is very passionate about agriculture and FFA, where he has hopes of being a regional officer.”
