East Morgan McKinney 2020
My name is Morgan McKinney and I am one of the At-Large Directors for the 2020-2021 AMSA Student Board. I grew up in a small town in central Indiana where I was heavily involved with 4-H and the Indiana high school rodeo association. After graduating high school, I attended Purdue University where I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in Animal Science in May of 2018. My time at Purdue was spent heavily involved in undergraduate research with swine. I was also part of Block and Bridle and the 2nd Meat Judging Team in over 50 years. I am just finishing my master’s degree studying meat and muscle biology under Dr. Tracy Scheffler. I helped coach the Meat Animal Evaluation Team and the RMC quiz bowl team. After graduation I am moving to North Carolina to work for Smithfield Foods in hog procurement and meat quality. One of my favorite things about being on the student board is being able to engage and network with students and professionals from other university that share the same passion as me. One thing that I have enjoyed so far being on the AMSA Student Board this year is being able to collaborate with students from other universities and the AMSA staff to provide the best opportunities for our student members!
