Kiersten McMahon has joined the Logan Soil and Water Conservation District staff as a summer intern. Kiersten just completed her sophomore year at Kent State University. She is focusing on Environmental Conservation Biology. She volunteers at the University greenhouse and enjoys the learning experience. Prior to Kent State, Kiersten graduated from North Union Schools, Richwood, Ohio. She was the salutatorian of her 2016 graduating class. Her high school experience included 4 years in Future Farmers of America and participating in sports when not studying. She also enjoyed 4-H and showing livestock at the local fair.
While interning at Logan Soil and Water this summer, Kiersten will be assisting our District Technician with planning, designing and implementing conservation engineering practices. She will also be helping with the fair display planning, field evaluations, archiving District historic data, learning about USDA conservation programs and general office duties. She will be with us till mid-August.
When not working or studying, Kiersten likes to play Quidditch, read, be outdoors and visit with her friends. She is working on building a personal library on topics that interest her, primarily topics concerning conservation, environment and agriculture.
We are happy to have her on board but fear that the summer will slip by faster than the work load. Welcome, Kiersten. We hope your internship at Logan SWCD will be a worthwhile experience for you.
