This week we will be highlighting two current Ohio State ATI students, Kalyn Blue and Olivia Rinesmith. Both of these students interned at an Ohio State University 4-H Extension office.
Blue is a current Agriscience and Extension Education major from Hamler, Ohio. This summer she interned with both Henry and Fulton County 4-H Extension offices. Her projects included coordinating judges and assisting with questions and office duties. Her advice to future students is to get engaged and involved. “The student organizations and opportunities available through Ohio State will put you ahead for your future career!” Blue added.
From London, Ohio, Rinesmith is studying Agricultural Communication. She completed her internship with the Madison County 4-H Extension office, focusing on the county fair. She attended junior and senior fair board meetings, created graphics for social media, recorded live shows, and assisted with interviews for the junior fair board. Rinesmith shared, ”Having a virtual internship has helped me with my technology skills, as well as communication skills through web calls.”
