OACC interns begin work at local co-ops this week

image1Ten students begin their internships at local cooperatives throughout the state this week. Interns from Oklahoma State University, Northwestern Oklahoma State University have been placed at 10 co-ops to complete their internship program.

The OACC internship program is aimed at recruiting talent into the cooperative system. Throughout their internship experience, students gain a sense of what a cooperative does, how they run and what is unique about them. They are rotated through every department of the co-op, gaining practical application skills in each area.

Each student will complete a special project assignment. The interns present their research findings to the OACC staff and co-op managers. The top four interns, based on their special project presentations, will earn a $500 scholarship and an all-expense paid trip to the OACC CEO & Board Retreat this summer.

Below are the interns names and where they have been placed for the summer:

Brady Huckabay – Garber
EJ Stacy – Ames
Carley Rains – Snyder
Brady Mayfield – Perryton
Lane Newlin – Pond Creek
Brent Williams – Tonkawa
Lydia Thompson – Alva
Katie Lindsay – Texhoma
Walter Allard – Carmen

If you see one of the interns in your co-op, be sure to welcome them to the co-op system!
