In Memory of Kayla Marie Jones
I am Kayla-Marie Jones, an animal science major attending Tuskegee University and I grew - up in Hayward, California. My interest in animal science started when I was of the age 8 I would babysit and give aid to pets. That’s when I decided to tell everyone I wanted to be a “vegetarian,” but I meant a veterinarian. Thus, the reason I was excited to hear about the ToxMSDT program. I’m hoping to add my diverse skills to the program as well as implement it as a holistic veterinarian.
My background includes research as an undergraduate in nutrition, cancer biology, renewable energy and marine biology research. Furthermore, I placed 3rd at the Professional Agriculture Workers Conference, I placed 2nd at the Joint Annual Research Symposium, and earlier this year I placed 1st at the Joint Annual Research Symposium. Being a winner and a leader in various organizations on and off campus and serving on a few e-boards has inspired me to explore all aspects of my major. Overall, I thank God for the opportunity to progress within the ToxMSDT program.
