Jared Sanderson of Sandusky was chosen as the 2017-18 recipient of the Glenn and Anne Lake Scholarship through the Michigan Dairy Memorial Scholarship Foundation Inc. at Michigan State University (MSU). This scholarship is named after Michigan dairy farmers Glenn and Anne Lake and provides $7,500 in scholarship money divided over two semesters. Glenn Lake served as president of the National Milk Producers Federation and provided leadership in creating the Great Lakes Milk Marketing Federation, which helped dairy farmers secure bargaining rights to market their milk.
Sanderson, the son of Mike and Pattie Sanderson, is a sophomore at Michigan State studying Animal Science with a concentration in Production Animal Scholars. He was selected to receive this award based on his academic achievements, involvement in extracurricular activities, and interests in one day pursuing a career in the dairy industry.
Sanderson is currently an Undergraduate Research Assistant in Dr. Mike VandeHaar’s Nutrition Laboratory at Michigan State. He has also held employment at Welter Dairy Farm in Crosswell, MI, where he milked about 100 Holstein cows, and Weaverland Dairy in Sandusky, caring for about 160 calves. Jared is an active member of the MSU Dairy Club, serves as the Treasurer of the MSU Block & Bridle Club, participated in MSU’s Dairy Challenge, and is a member of Huron View 4-H Club.
After graduating with an undergraduate degree, Jared plans to attend the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine and ultimately become a large animal veterinarian, creating his own practice.
