Stuart is with the Journal as part of the American Ag Editors’ Association (AAEA) Summer Intern Program, sponsored by the AAEA Professional Improvement Foundation.
Stuart is originally from Harrison, Arkansas. He will be a senior at the University of Arkansas in the fall with a major in agricultural communications. While at the Journal he will have several duties, including: page design, Beef Empire Days coverage, All Aboard Harvest print coverage and 3i show. Stuart will also get to work at the Agricultural Media Summit in Buffalo, New York at the end of the summer.
In the future, Stuart would like to pursue a graduate degree in agricultural communications and eventually work in editorial at an agricultural publication.
“Everyone has been very nice and welcoming. I feel that everyone sees me as more than just an intern, and I’m given meaningful projects to work on” Stuart said. “It’s been a good experience so far.”
