My name is Luke Unterkircher and I live in Tulia which is a small town close to Lubbock.  My parents are Robert and Dana Unterkircher.  My father works for Natural Resource Conservation Service and my mother is a teacher at Tulia High School.  I have one sister, Laynee who will be a freshman next year. I will be a Senior at Tulia High School this next year and  I am involved in sports which include football, powerlifting, and track. Being in sports has helped me in teamwork and I have made a lot of friends throughout the years.   I am also involved in FFA and 4-H.  My main interest and hobbies have come through the many years of being a part of 4-H and FFA. I have been involved in showing sheep since third grade and through this have learned responsibility and time management. I have used my knowledge of livestock to compete in judging, skill-a-thon, and educational presentations. I have also competed in competitions like food show and food challenge. I’ve additionally served on my county council and local positions in my 4-H club and FFA chapter. Those positions have helped me learn to be a good leader and guide others by example. I have also been involved as a Water Ambassador and Livestock Ambassador.  In the future, I plan on going to West Texas A & M University and majoring in agriculture engineering. This internship can provide me better opportunities for scholarships and many future opportunities in water conservation.
