I love my town, the locals, how everyone knows everyone. However, id like to see the high school work more towards helping students get to college instead of pushing toward agriculture and FFA, or the career center. All of this is great and it fits the farming driven community, but as an inspiring doctor, I didn't receive the support I needed or the advice I was searching for when I decided to go to OSU my junior year as a full-time student. I felt alone and apart from my teachers and counselor.

Small town with very few jobs. However, bigger cities are nearby that offer better job offers.
