Rowan County Cooperative Extension has four interns this summer who will be working with the public on a variety of events and behind the scenes.

Jade Lomax is from Salisbury and is a senior at North Carolina State University, majoring in animal science. Upon graduating, she plans to work with local veterinarians and maybe travel out of state to gain some experience in the veterinary field before attending veterinary school. Lomax is a summer intern with the Rowan County Cooperative Extension until the end of July.

Jordan Shipton is a rising senior at North Carolina State University majoring in agricultural education with a concentration in animal science and minors in horticulture, leadership and animal science. Shipton hopes to teach agriculture at the high school level or to serve Cooperative Extension.  Shipton received a grant from N.C. A&T State University for an internship with Cooperative Extension in Rowan County.

Cathy Young is a student at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College enrolled in the associate in arts program. Young is a NOYCE Scholarship recipient which is a program to provide incentive for students with an interest in a STEM (science, technology, engineering or math) field to consider the teaching profession. Each of the places chosen for the interns has a focus in at least one of the STEM areas and opportunities for the interns not only to learn but to teach.

Monica Miller is from Charlotte and attends Rowan-Cabarrus Community College south campus in Concord. She is majoring in criminal justice forensic science and is now a rising junior. Miller is a NOYCE Scholarship recipient as well.
