Thank you from 2021 Iowa Woodland Owners Association Scholarship Recipient

My name is John Ancona and I have recently decided to major in forestry. I have always loved the outdoors, and I grew up doing Boy Scouts, so I have always had a great appreciation for nature. I want to express my sincerest gratitude for this scholarship, and I will learn as much as I can about forestry in the next few years. In the picture I have sent, I am using a Biltmore stick, which is a measuring stick that foresters have used for over a hundred years to estimate the height and diameter of trees. Thanks again for the scholarship, I will do my best to excel in my field!
