Cresco

Abby Kennon was able to return to her roots for her summer internship and use her passion for agronomy to serve her community.

Kennon, a junior majoring in agronomy, spent the summer in her hometown of Cresco, Iowa working as the 2018 Borlaug-Thomson intern with the Norman Borlaug Heritage Foundation.

The experience was far from relaxed. The very first day of her internship, she was already making a trip to Des Moines to meet with a strategic planning committee at the World Food Prize to discuss funding and grants, which was one of Kennon’s goals for the summer.
