Indiana Farm Bureau’s latest crop of summer interns will be assisting in the areas of accounting, law, public relations and ag promotion and outreach. From left to right:
Melissa Cuttriss is from Huntington, Indiana. She is currently a senior at Purdue University working toward her bachelor’s degree in accounting and management with a concentration in finance. After graduating, she will continue to study at Purdue to obtain the credits necessary to take the certified public accountant exam. This summer, she will be working at IFB as the intern in the administrative and finance team. In her time with IFB this summer, she hope to gain a wide range of real-world experience that she can apply to her course work and her future career.
Sarah Doyle is a J.D. candidate at the Penn State Dickinson School of Law who joins IFB this summer as a legal clerk. While at school, Doyle serves as president of the Penn State Agricultural Law Society, and was a member of the National Environmental Law Moot Court Team. Last year, she worked as a research assistant for the Penn State Agricultural Law Center. Prior to law school, Doyle graduated from Penn State with a bachelor of science degree in animal sciences. She hopes to work as an attorney specializing in food and agriculture law. She hails from Red Lion, Pennsylvania, where her family raises registered Southdown sheep and Christmas trees.
Taylor Scuglik is a senior at Indiana University, majoring in English and journalism. This summer she is working as an intern in IFB’s public relations team, where she helps to write articles for IFB’s publications and assists with different aspects of marketing campaigns. When she graduates, she would love to move to a big city and work at a publishing company. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, writing and competing in gymnastics. She also volunteers at the animal shelter in Bloomington and is involved with a group at IU called Globemed, which sponsors a health clinic in Ecuador and works to promote global health.
For the second year in a row, Samantha Lowe is interning with the organizational development team as its ag promotion and outreach intern. Some of her responsibilities include assisting with state fair planning, helping to organize IFB’s showcase exhibit at Indiana FFA State Convention, and working closely with the education coordinator on grant material. She will be graduating in December 2014 with a degree in animal agribusiness from Purdue University. While attending Purdue, she is involved in Collegiate Farm Bureau and Purdue Dairy Club. In the future, she hopes to continue her career at Farm Bureau or work for a company that is involved in promotion and outreach for those not involved in agriculture.
