Alumnus Zach Millender is one of Liberty’s first zoo and wildlife biology graduates and works as an animal care specialist at SeaWorld San Antonio.

“Liberty is a huge part of the reason that I am here at SeaWorld,” he said. “Being in an environment that fostered my passion, where I was told, ‘You are capable of doing this, we want to make it a smooth process for you, and we want to prepare you and equip you to best get there,’ made a huge difference for me.” – Alumnus Zach Millender
