Sarah Johnson, of Williamsport, completed an internship with the Advancement Office for the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences at the Ohio State University during the 2015-2016 academic year.

During the internship, Johnson worked with donors, faculty, staff and students to develop story content and designed and edited communication materials. She contributed stories to the CFAES Connect newsletter, created videos, photographed events, prepared news releases, and assisted as needed with the donor relations, special events and stewardship activities in the Advancement Office.

“Sarah has done excellent work for the CFAES Advancement team. During her internship, Sarah displayed many talents as she tackled the communications tasks given her, and she did so with great enthusiasm. Currently, she is a student associate with us,” said Matthew Marx, coordinator of development communications, CFAES Advancement Office.

Johnson will return to Ohio State in August to continue her degree in agricultural communication. She is the daughter of Steve and Terry McKie Johnson and is a graduate of Westfall High School.

The agricultural communication major at Ohio State prepares students to plan, develop, and implement a communication campaign, using visual media, writing and editing. Students study crisis communication, graphic design, marketing, and journalism so they can spread the word about agriculture.
