Katherine Bell, of Liberty Center, will complete an internship with the Ohio Agriscience Internship Program in 2016.
The Ohio Agriscience Internship Program serves as an intensive program to prepare current college students for careers as agricultural educators. This internship and professional development opportunity exposes students studying agricultural education to all aspects of Team Ag Ed, including: Ohio Department of Education Office of Career Tech, Ohio FFA Association, Ohio FFA Foundation, Ohio Association of Agricultural Educators, and Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum. Through this internship, students gain knowledge in technical content, organizational structure and real teaching experiences.
During the internship, Bell will work to promote the profession by facilitating workshops at Ohio FFA Convention, Ohio FFA Camp Muskingum, and the Ohio State Fair. She will also make visits to high school classrooms this fall and attend the 2016 National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“Katherine is eager to grow as an intern and consistently strives to improve. This leads her team to improve and grow with every new project,” said Jessica Parrish, Ohio FFA Foundation program manager and internship coordinator. “Her natural welcoming presence is the perfect addition to our team.”
Bell will return to Ohio State in August to continue her degree in agriscience education. She is the daughter of Steve and Lois Bell and a graduate of Liberty Center High School.
