Congratulations to the 2015 summer interns (8/31/2015)

Following the success of past years, six counties hosted NDSU Extension Service summer interns.  The interns and their host counties were:

  • Renae Tokach – Morton County
  • Audrey Mascal – Cass County
  • Amanda Donarski – Ward County
  • Makenzie Forward – Ransom County
  • Petra Reyna One Hawk – Sioux County
  • Jacey Trottier – Rolette County

Special thanks goes out to all the host counties for their hard work mentoring and coaching these interns.  In the exit interviews, all of the interns stated how much they learned, not just about Extension, but how they could see the Extension Service as a career option when they graduate.

To share their experience, here are a few quotes from selected interns:

“A very hands on active internship! A great chance to work with multiple agricultural fields.” Audrey Mascal

“This internship really opened up my eyes to all that Extension agents do on a daily basis which sometimes includes being an expert in just about everything! I had a great experience working with my mentor and gained a lot of knowledge over the summer.” Renae Tokach

“I would have to say my experience was one that will help shape my future career choices. I have learned so much from my mentor and fellow co-workers over the summer that I will take into school and my career. I hope to continue along the path of educating the public on agricultural issues and solutions.” Amanda Donarski

"Working for the NDSU Extension Service this summer has taught me a lot of what Extension does and is involved with that I was unaware of. It has been a blast working with the staff!" Makenzie Forward

We will continue the intern program in 2016 so we hope you will be interested in hosting an intern if asked.
