Introducing the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Forsyth County Center, 4-H Summer Intern

NC State Extension announced that Anika Parks is completing an Extension internship this summer with the Forsyth 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 College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and Director of NC State Extension.

Parks is a graduate from the University of Arkansas majoring in Agricultural & Extension Education and is a native of Bakersfield, CA. She can be reached at aparks3@ncsu.edu .
