When Logan Wells decided to attend UW-Madison, he was excited for the educational opportunities and the cutting-edge research being done on campus. He was also looking forward to the student atmosphere—anything from going to basketball games to building relationships with fellow students.
Wells has taken advantage of all of those opportunities from the start. One of his greatest experiences in which he got to build relationships and learn about others was his Sustainable Forestry First-Year Interest Group. “I grew really close with my peers, and it helped me get my career at Madison off on the right foot.”
Now a junior majoring in forest science, Wells has had found value in many other experiences as well. Through his Silviculture class, which taught him about forest management practices, he learned about his career interests. He now aims to get a job in the wood products industry, managing a sawmill or as a field forester.
Outside of the classroom, Wells is part of the Forestry Club and the Collegiate FFA. He is also a past Wisconsin State FFA Officer. He credits his parents for instilling in him a strong work ethic and what it means to be a servant leader. Wells’ hard work and achievements were recognized recently with the Stone Forestry Scholarship, an award that he says has allowed him to follow his dreams as a student and truly experience Wisconsin.
