Title: Grain Operations
Location: Walton
Hometown: Moundridge Ks
College: Tabor College

Why did you choose to pursue an internship with MKC/TMA?
I chose to pursue an internship at MKC because I wanted to learn more about the agricultural industry and the different jobs within MKC.                  
What does a day in the life of an MKC/TMA intern in your role look like?
For me, a regular day consists of measuring bins, loading and dumping trucks, cleaning the elevator, gathering samples, and doing any other tasks that need to be accomplished for the day.

What has been the most exciting or interesting thing you’ve learned so far?
One of the most interesting things I have learned thus far would be watching and learning how we screen grain. If a certain type of grain gets mixed with another type of grain, we’re able to screen it and separate it. Another exciting thing I have learned is how to operate the forklifts, skid steer and telehandler. 

What is one thing you have learned in your college education that you’ve been able to apply to your experience this summer?
One thing I have learned at college is time management while trying to balance classes and sports. This skill has been very useful when working to figure out what needs to be done and setting a timeline to get it done in a timely manner.

What have you gained from your internship experience that you will carry with you in the future?
I’ve learned how to adapt to changing circumstances in a short period of time and still be successful in what I’m doing.
