Haley Wilson, of New Lexington, completed an internship this past summer with the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation in Columbus, Ohio.
During her internship, Wilson served as a lead intern, coordinating Ohio Farm Bureau’s Land and Living Exhibit at the Ohio State Fair. This football-field sized interactive display was for visitors of the Fair to learn about the industries of agriculture and natural resources. She also hired, trained and managed a team of 25-30 young people that served as ambassadors throughout the fair and managed social media for the exhibit.
To learn about large-scale exhibits, as part of her internship Wilson traveled to St. Louis, Missouri, Indianaipolis, Indiana and Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida to veiw and interact with a variety of agricultural exhibits with the goal of gaining ideas for Ohio Farm Bureau’s exhibit at the Ohio State Fair.
Wilson is completing a bachelor of science degree in agriscience education at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. She plans to graduate in May 2020.
