Life Twins

Hannah Harris, Sr. Animal Science, and Chloe Davidson, Sr. Animal Science,

became friends their freshman year of high school.

They had multiple classes together and soon after became really good friends.

As their friendship grew, they realized how well they worked together. 

During their sophomore year of high school,

they decided to start planning their schedules together

and they've had almost every class together since then!

They discovered WT together at a college fair held by their high school.

While talking to an advisor from WT, and then speaking with each other, they believed that WT is the perfect place for them to continue their education. They are now inseparable, although Hannah is a sporty person and likes to spend time outside and Chloe is a bookworm who would rather stay inside.

"We still have an amazing time together. We are also roommates,

and both have an obsession with coffee," shared Chloe.

Hannah and Chloe are looking forward to graduating in December.

It remains to be seen if they will be work twins!

A Moment with Mrs. Bachman

Dr. Pond's Ponder

Dr. Dan Posey, Clinical Professor of Veterinary Medicine,

or an inspirational quote. 

One of his recent offerings is still in my mind:

"The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts."

   ― Marcus Aurelius
