“In life, there are many prisons. But even in the darkest ones, there are always possibilities”. – Nelson Mandela
My name is Davon Lamar Goodwin and I’m from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Now I currently live in Pembroke, North Carolina where I attend the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. I am currently a senior where I major in Biology and Botany. I will graduate in May 2013, and hopefully attend graduate school in the fall. I currently serve in the United States Army Reserve and I am also a combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan from 2009 – 2010. This experience in the VFC has been great so far, I couldn’t ask for a better team and leader. I hope this program continues to grow every year. My future plans are to become an agronomist and research different ways to help sustain agriculture for the world.
