The Rural Radio Network welcomes an introduced Nebraskan, Jessie Lamp as their 2023 summer intern.
Lamp, an incoming sophomore at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is majoring in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communication and minoring in Engler Entrepreneurship and Hospitality. Lamp is also involved in organizations such as the Nebraska Agriculture Youth Council and Sigma Alpha Sorority.
Throughout the summer, she will conduct interviews, write stories, and create content for the Rural Radio Network. Lamp will be based out of the Nebraska Soybean Board Studios at Nebraska Innovation Campus in Lincoln.
Lamp was born and raised in Montana and later moved to Nebraska where her passion for agriculture began. She participated in 4-H and FFA in Mitchell, NE and later relocated to Ashland, NE to graduate high school. In her spare time, she enjoys golfing with family, walking her dog, and taking scenic drives.
“I am looking forward to networking with professionals in the ag industry and gaining foundational skills and knowledge of the agriculture communication world,” Lamp said.
Lamp’s internship is made possible with support from the NAFB Foundation, which offers internship grants to member stations and networks.
