“People are always saying Columbia is so small and they want to get away, but I like it enough,” Fulcher said. “It is small enough to know a lot of people,but big enough to discover new places every day.”
In high school Fulcher was an avid runner. She ran varsity track for two years and cross country for one. Fulcher still loves running and sports. In fact, she just loves anything outside.
“My senior year I just went crazy joining clubs.” Fulcher said.
During her senior year of high school Fulcher joined clubs such as the food club and young moderates, a club for kids who were not republicans or democrats. Also, Fulcher took part in GIS competitions throughout her high school career, where her and a team made maps to compete in competitions with other map makers.
Attending MU, that was an easy choice. Her father is a professor at CAFNR, which instilled her tiger pride early. Though, she did look at other colleges just in case she wanted to get away. As for choosing science and agricultural journalism as a major that was a different story. Fulcher is not sure what her career goals are yet. She really wants to be involved in agriculture and with CAFNR.
