So Long, Farewell, Until We Meet Again

Written By: Amber Brown

Time has flown by! I can’t believe its July already. In the past weeks, I have learned so much about Carolina Farm Credit and the AgFirst Association, and what they do for the communities around them. To say that the members are grateful for an organization like this would be an understatement.

On June 13th, I traveled to the Statesville office for new hire and intern training, and on the 19th I traveled to Columbia, South Carolina to learn about the AgFirst Farm Credit Bank and the Association. The sessions were great and the food was even better!

I am sad to say my time as an intern at Carolina Farm Credit will be coming to a close soon. I will be traveling to Montreal, Canada for a study abroad experience with a group of students from North Carolina A& T State University. We will be taking French classes to learn the language, surveying local farmers, and touring the cultural and historical sites in the region. I am so excited to travel and to use the knowledge I have gained here at Carolina Farm Credit.

I am so thankful to have been presented with the opportunity to become an intern here and meet so many wonderful people and learn about what this great organization does for their communities. It has been a pleasure to have Mrs. Wanda Harris as an awesome mentor as well as working alongside the team here in Browns Summit. This has been the best summer by far, and I owe it all to Carolina Farm Credit.
