Major: Mechanical Engineering

            My name is Michael Tlach, and I am from Britt, IA, which is a small town in North Central Iowa.  I grew up on a farm with three other siblings: two older sisters and one younger brother.  My mom is a secretary for the State Farm Office in town, and my dad is a County Supervisor along with farming 1,000 acres and taking care of a heard of 60 cows.  In high school, I was involved in around five different clubs and I participated in three sports: football, wrestling, and track.  I also showed calves and pigs at my county fair and The Iowa State Fair.

            I am currently in my second semester at Iowa State majoring in Mechanical Engineering.  I am involved with The Engineering Ambassador and Mentor Program, which gives daily tours of the engineering department, and I am my house's Intramural Chair.  I participate in intramurals myself and attend as many sporting events as possible.
