Chris Sickal

Major: Wood Science and Forest Products

  • Option: Forest Products Business

“Developing a good sense of time management skills as well as collaborating with many colleagues to get a project completed is key to getting things done on time.”

I am a senior in the sustainable biomaterials department studying is forest products business. I decided to major in this field because my father operates his own logging business. My mother works for an industrial paper company called Rock Tenn, so you could say that I was destined to learn all about wood.

After graduating, I plan to work with my brother and father in the family logging business. However, if I receivea good job offer from a company, I will have to decide whether or not to accept the offer. I am from a small county called New Kent, which lies between the cities of Richmond and Williamsburg, Va. Hunting and fishing are some of the many activities that I enjoy to do at home. Sports are also a major part of my life, because running without a purpose doesn’t do much for me. So I play sports to stay active; my favorite is basketball, with football following close behind. I am a very outgoing person and I don’t have much fear of speaking in public.
