NC State Extension announced that Jared Butler is completing an Extension internship this summer with the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Burke County Center.

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. 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” said Dr. Richard Bonanno, Associate Dean of the NC State University College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Director of NC State Extension.

Butler is a junior from NC State University majoring in Plant & Soil Sciences and is a native of Hickory, NC. He will be working in all program areas throughout the summer, helping to continue to provide virtual programming to youth and adults in Burke County.
