Congratulations to Charity-Dakota Jordan, for receiving the 2022 Achievement in Agriculture Award!!

On her father’s farm, she tended a herd of as many as 40 goats, providing vaccinations, milking, and helping birth kids.

Jordan aims to be a large animal veterinarian after graduating in six years from WSU. Her path is accelerated as a Running Start student who will graduate high school with an AA degree in hand. She is entering the veterinarian field at a time when studies show a shortage of companion animal veterinarians, putting pressure on large animal vets, and widely affecting farms across the nation.
“My goal is to come back and work to serve our community in Skagit Valley,” she said.
