Each year summer proves to be a busy time at Hereford Publications Inc. as the editorial team is in full swing producing the Hereford World’s annual Herd Bull and Reference edition and the creative services group is planning for fall sale catalogs and marketing pieces.
In May we were excited to welcome our LPC student intern, Kayla Wilkins from Texas Tech University, because, well, we needed the help!
While the internship provides many learning opportunities, we have high expectations of our students to output quality work, interact warmly and professionally with our members and Hereford breeders and have a great attitude along the way.
Hosting the LPC internship program gave us a more diverse pool of qualified, hard-working applicants which was both wonderful and challenging…it made our task of selecting an intern that much more difficult!
Kayla fits in great with our team and brings many fresh ideas — which is just another perk of having an intern.
Kayla has easily made friends around the office, doesn’t know a stranger and has this positive outlook on life that is contagious. However, my favorite part about having her in the office is she’s always suggesting a stop for ice cream…and who can argue with that?
Looking forward to what the rest of the summer brings!
Editor, Hereford World
p.s.—LPC members: If getting more summer help (on us!) while supporting a budding ag communicator sounds like something you’re interested in for 2017, be sure to fill out the host application ASAP. It’s due July 15.
