Meet Payton Ehrhardt

When it came to college, Payton Ehrhardt knew there was only one place for her, and that was the University of Missouri.

“It’s all I know. I live and breathe the school and tigers,” Ehrhardt said.

Ehrhardt, a native of Marshall, Mo., is no stranger to MU. Many members of her family are alumni of the University, including her older sister.

Ehrhardt is a freshman at MU majoring in science and agricultural journalism with a focus in agricultural marketing. Her interest in journalism and the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources’ scholarship assistance led to Ehrhardt’s decision to major in science and agricultural journalism.

In high school, Ehrhardt kept busy by being a member of Distributive Education Clubs of America, Future Business Leaders of America, Spanish club, National Honors Society, 4-H and student council. In addition, she was a member of the swim and golf teams for two years, and was on her high school cheerleading squad too.

While in college, Ehrhardt looks to get involved with the University. She is a member of the Kappa Delta Sorority and is hoping to get involved with Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow and True Tiger Mizzou Alumni Association.

Currently, Ehrhardt is undecided on her future career plans. However, she isn’t shy of playing the field to find her writing interests in life. She looks to get further into the journalism field by writing more, and hopes that her endeavors will bring her a bright future.
