Michigan Native Interning in Caldwell
Raleigh, N.C. – NC State Extension announced that Caitlin Luck is completing an Extension internship this summer with the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Caldwell County Center.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to engage with 4-H programming in Caldwell County and learn more about how Extension can be used to connect communities with the appropriate resources,” said Luck. “Being able to utilize my background and experiences within agriculture will be beneficial to adding context to the new perspectives I gain from my internship.”
An Extension summer intern works with Extension personnel to deliver hands-on, educational programs. Job shadowing and mentoring help interns learn about the mission and work of North Carolina Cooperative Extension.
“Extension makes a positive difference in the community every day,” said Dr. Richard Bonanno, Associate Dean of the NC State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Director of NC State Extension. “We provide educational programs that connect communities with research-based information. Our internship program is another way we help prepare students for challenging and rewarding careers in food, agriculture, natural resources, and family and consumer sciences.”
Luck is a recent graduate from Michigan State University, where she studied agriculture, food, and natural resources education. She is a native of Jasper, Michigan.
