To say that my time here at Carolina Farm Credit has flown by would be an understatement to the memories and relationships I have made.
It feels as though just last week I was walking into the office for the first day, and now I am on my last week as an intern – wow!
Over the past couple of weeks I have been working with the other interns to finalize our project for the summer. We developed a survey to analyze the best way to gain more business from part-time farmers. After collecting all of the data from the survey, we have analyzed the data and came up with some suggestions for the organization to increase their business in that area. Next Monday is our last day as interns at Carolina Farm Credit; the other interns and I will be giving a presentation to the executive team on our ideas for increasing the part-time farmer business and our experiences over the summer.
I wish that time would “slow its roll” before the summer is gone, but I know that all good things must come to an end. From touring AgFirst in Columbia, to farm tours at Knob Creek, and all of the various trainings this organization has provided me with so many opportunities that I could never say thank you enough for.
I want to say a huge thank you to the staff at the Shelby Branch; to Suzette, Katie, Toni, Miles, Melissa, and Gary, thank you for making me feel a part of the farm credit family and for always letting me learn from you in every aspect of the workplace. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each employee and customer at Carolina Farm Credit and I hope to stay involved with the organization for many years to come!
