Meet AgGrad’s 1st Ultimate Ag Intern

Jamie Johansen

AgGrad says Taylor Kennedy will be the first ever participant in the Ultimate Ag Internship. The program was created as a window into agribusinesses across the country which elevates work culture, career opportunities and a bird’s eye view of specific job functions. This summer, Kennedy will travel to various agricultural companies to learn and document these components via videography.

Kennedy is currently a graduate student of agricultural communications at Oklahoma State University. She holds a bachelor’s of science degree in agricultural services and development from Tarleton State University and is a former national president of Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow (ACT). Through this internship opportunity, Kennedy will expand her knowledge of the industry and build upon her video and photography skills.

“We are very excited to see Taylor bring this program to life,” says Tim Hammerich, Founder of AgGrad. “She will provide us the chance to tell the story of modern agribusiness in a format that resonates with young audiences: through video and imagery on social media.”

AgGrad has a community of students and young professionals interested in agribusiness careers. The organization believes in equipping professionals with accessibility to employment details they would otherwise not receive at job fairs. Agribusinesses interested in participating in the program should contact Jenny Schweigert at Jenny@AgGrad.com for details. Follow Kennedy’s journey, on AgGrad Facebook Page and on Instagram.
