Hello, everyone! We would like to introduce ourselves as the 2017 Ohio Farm Bureau interns. For the past few months, we have been working hard and having a blast planning the Ohio State Fair Land and Living Exhibit in the Nationwide Donahey Ag & Hort Building. Please be sure to check back with us on our journey to another fantastic, educational and fun-filled fair!
I am from Wood County, Ohio where my family owns and operates a small sheep farm. I will be a third year at The Ohio State University this fall where I am double majoring in agricultural communication and public affairs. I was an ambassador at last year’s fair and I am excited to help in making the fair an unique experience this year.
Growing up on a small farm in Mount Vernon, located in Knox County, I discovered my love for agriculture at a young age. This fall, I will be a junior at Oklahoma State University studying agricultural education. This summer, I am super excited to have the opportunity to share my love for agriculture with fair goers at the Nationwide Donahey Ag & Hort Building at the Ohio State Fair.
I just wrapped up my first year at Wilmington College where I am dual majoring in animal science and education. Being a 4-H and FFA member in Perry County, I realized that my three favorite things in life were agriculture, teachable moments and fun. This summer, I have the awesome opportunity to combine all three of these in the Land and Living Exhibit! I can’t wait to see you there!
