Elisha Adkins
When Elisha Adkins starts graduate school next fall at 21 years old, she will be the youngest student in her class.But for the Hermiston High School graduate, her dreams of attending veterinary school are half a lifetime in the making.
Adkins, a senior at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, is going into the doctoral program for veterinary medicine at Oregon State University.
She will specialize in bovine medicine and plans to create an international organization to improve livestock production, creating a sustainable economic resource for poor communities.
"I did a lot of charity work in high school," Elisha said."My ultimate goal is to head a charity organization."
Beside juggling course work and extra curriculars, Elisha spent the past three summers as a veterinary intern under Creigh Lincoln at Hermiston Veterinary Clinic.There she discovered her love of large animals, especially cows.
That passion and drive earned Elisha a $5,000 Graduate Fellowship Award from the honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.EOU's local chapter nominated Elisha, who is one of 60 fellowship recipients among 168 national applicants.
"The Phi Kappa Phi scholarship gets me one step closer to graduating," Elisha said."I love Hermiston and La Grande ... but I really think the sky's the limit."
Phi Kappa Phi, which invites just the top 10 percent of college seniors, inducted Elisha based on her outstanding academic achievement and her participation in community outreach programs.
Elisha was a residential assistant in the EOU residence halls and is active in student government.
Outside of school, she is involved with wildlife preservation projects, was a spokesperson and translator for Vange John Memorial Hospice, and spent countless hours at the vet clinic.
"Elisha is an outstanding student," he said.
