Meredith Oglesby, of Hillsboro, recently completed an internship with OSU Extension, Highland County.
During her internship, Oglesby worked to prepare for 4-H camps, summer judging and the Highland County Fair. She planned Cloverbud Fun Day by creating and designing T-shirts, name badges, and the agenda for the day. She prepared items for the Highland County Fair’s special interest judging and assisted with all office tasks throughout the summer.
“The internships our students complete are valuable, hands-on experiences,” said Dr. Annie Specht, program manager and associate professor for agricultural communication. “Not only do they have the opportunity to put the skills they have acquired in their courses into practice, but they also expand their knowledge and create connections by working with professionals in the industry.”
Oglesby returned to Columbus in August, where she is completing a degree in agricultural communication at The Ohio State University.
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.
