Meet Matt McCormack

Matt McCormack, a junior transfer student, was born and raised in Columbia. He went to Moberly Community College for two years before making the decision to attend the University of Missouri.

“In community college, I developed an interest for writing in the journalism field,” McCormack said.

He likes working with his hands, and has worked in heating and cooling for three years. Some of his other interests include fishing, especially flyfishing, and traveling. He has combined these interests on flyfishing trips to Colorado, southern Missouri, and Oklahoma. Some of his other favorite vacation spots are Hawaii and Mexico, where he has traveled with his family and friends.

McCormack is also a loyal Chiefs football fan and loves the outdoors. In addition to fishing, he enjoys floating on the river. He plans on writing for a newspaper or magazine, such as “Conservation Magazine.”

“I’m much better at putting my ideas on paper than in words,” McCormack said. “Science and agricultural journalism will expand what I already like to do.”

Whatever the future holds, McCormack has found the perfect fit in the science and agricultural journalism program and is looking forward to making the most of his first year at MU.
