This year’s Crawford, Marion, Morrow and Richland County Farm Bureau summer intern is Nicole Cook. Nicole is an upcoming junior at The Ohio State University majoring in agribusiness and applied economics and minoring in animal sciences. On campus, she is involved with Agribusiness Club and Saddle and Sirloin Club. She recently took a trip to Texas with the Agribusiness Club where she visited the Texas Farm Bureau and became interested in interning here.
Nicole is originally from Richland County and is a 2021 graduate of Madison Comprehensive High School. During her high school career, she was heavily involved in 4-H. Throughout her years in 4-H, she held various leadership positions in her club. At the fair she showed dairy and beef feeder calves and steers, and market hogs. Nicole enjoyed her time in 4-H, but since the end of her showing career, she is eager to get involved in other activities within agriculture.
Some of her responsibilities as an intern this summer will include promoting membership, aiding in the coordination of events, and helping to inform the public on agricultural-related topics.
“I am very excited about this internship, the future of this organization, and getting to know all of the people involved. I’m looking forward to planning and executing events that advocate for agriculture and meeting the members of each county,” she said.
