LITTLE ROCK — Two college students are now getting work experience as summer interns with Arkansas Farm Bureau.

Tara L. Johnson, 20, is the Public Relations intern. She is the daughter of Thomas and Linda Johnson of Lead Hill (Boone County). Johnson is a junior at the University of Arkansas and is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in agricultural communications.

“I’m ready to immerse myself into the various experiences Arkansas Farm Bureau has to offer. This internship will not only provide valuable work experience but also insight into future career options,” Johnson said.

LaShainea A. Bettis, 22, is the intern for Farm Bureau’s Organization and Member Programs, Governmental Affairs, and the Commodity and Regulatory Affairs departments. She is the daughter of Jeff and Kim Bettis of Quitman (Cleburne County). Bettis plans to graduate in December with an agricultural business degree from Arkansas State University’s Beebe campus.

“I look forward to broadening my perspective of future career possibilities and working closely with the strong role models of Arkansas Farm Bureau,” Bettis said.

The 12-week internship will provide each intern with work experience related to their respective degrees.
