Meet Tessa Chambers

Tessa Chambers is an outdoorsy, active young woman. She is from a town in Missouri called Fayette. She attended Fayette High School, where she was involved in FFA, 4-H, student council, National Honor Society, band and choir. All of these activities were a huge part of her life.

FFA is dear to Chambers. Currently, she is a Missouri State FFA Officer. She devoted a lot of her time in high school to it and always enjoyed it. She also enjoys dairy cattle evaluation, public speaking, livestock judging, entomology and horse judging.

Chambers is currently a freshman at MU majoring in science and agricultural journalism. In her free time she enjoys riding horses and exploring gravel roads out in the country. Chambers raises horses, goats and cattle at her home in Fayette. Her favorite animal is the Missouri Fox Trotting Horse. At Mizzou, Chambers is interested in joining Collegiate Farm Bureau, ACT and rushing Sigma Alpha.

Going to the University of Missouri has always been a dream of Chambers. She feels that the University gives her the ability to not only become an amazing journalist through the journalism program, but also an amazing agricultural journalist through the science and agricultural journalism program that we offer at Mizzou. It has opened so many doors for her and she cannot wait to start her life in agricultural public relations once she graduates.

“Agriculture is a huge part of my life, and this passion, along with a passion for interacting with people is what caused me to pursue a degree in science and agricultural Journalism,” Chambers said.

Chambers would not want to be anywhere else and is enjoying every second here at Mizzou.
