Hi all, my name is Samantha Vazzano and I'm pleased to be the 2020 summer intern for the McHenry County Farm Bureau. I am excited to have the opportunity to gain more experience in the agricultural field. I grew up on my grandfather's farm in Huntley, IL Tom’s Farm Market, getting experience within the greenhouse and vegetable production side. I was also involved with my 4-H swine project growing up and riding horses.
I am a graduate of Marengo Community High School and just completed my first year at Iowa State University. My passion for agriculture led me to pursue my degree in Agriculture Communications. At Iowa State, I am Vice President of the Equestrian Team,Delta Gamma’s Director of Scholarship, and involved in Block and Bridle. Being involved in leadership positions will allow me to keep growing as a communicator.
After graduation, I hope to pursue a degree in advocating for agriculture. I am extremely pleased to have the opportunities this internship will offer me. My goal for this internship is to develop skills that will allow me to be a better promotor and communicator for the agriculture industry.
