Meet the Ohio State Fair Interns

Hey all! You may remember us from #TakeOverTuesday, we’d like to say hi again! We are the 2016 Ohio Farm Bureau interns and it is our job to plan the Ohio State Fair Land and Living Exhibit in the Donahey Ag & Hort Building. Be sure to keep checking back with us to see what’s new in the exhibit, whose booths you can come visit and the process of putting it all together.

Lauren Corry

I’m from Greene County where I grew up on a grain and beef cattle farm. I will be a senior at Ohio State this fall majoring in agricultural communication with a minor in animal sciences. I’ve been a state fair ambassador for the past 2 years and now I am excited to see things from a different position.

I just finished my second year at Wilmington College; my intended majors are political science and criminal justice. Born and raised in Clark County, agriculture has touched my life everyday in every way, and I look forward to getting to share some of my experiences and hear about others’ experiences during the fair!

I grew up in Pickaway County on a pig and grain farm. This fall I will be a senior at The Ohio State University majoring in agricultural communications with a minor in agriculture production. I am excited to watch the building come together at the state fair!
