Tristan Elmore was raised in Butler County, KY, a rural county that is not quite half-way-between the cities of Bowling Green and Owensboro. He is pursuing a degree in Wildlife Management.

Tristan chose to attend EKU because EKU has the most elite wildlife management program in the state. He said “If a person looks at Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources staff's educational background, they will realize that many of the staff are EKU wildlife management alumnus.”
