The Tennessee Beef Industry Council welcomed Caroline Brooks onto the team for the 2020 summer internship on May 28th. We are very excited to have her with us as we kick off several summer programs including the Beef Book Club and July Beef Month events.
Get to know Caroline in this brief bio she provided:
My name is Caroline Brooks and I am from McMinnville, Tennessee. I just completed my first year at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, where I am studying Agriculture Communications with the hopes of working in public relations in the agriculture industry. I am involved in the UTK Collegiate 4-H and FFA club, I am a Farm Credit Scholar, and a UTK 1794 Honors student. I did not grow up on a farm; however, I found my love for agriculture through my involvement in 4-H. In 4-H, I participated in the meats judging competition, outdoor meat cookery competition, the performing arts and recreation project, and the nutrition, health, and fitness project. I also served as Tennessee 4-H State Council Vice President my senior year of high school. As State Vice President, I had the opportunity to travel the state, speak to leaders in the agriculture industry, and become an advocate for agriculture.
I discovered the Tennessee Beef Industry Council through participation in the Beef Moovie contest, hosted by TBIC. I loved how the contest provides youth with a platform to educate others about the beef industry. I decided to apply for this internship because I wanted the opportunity to educate more people about the beef industry, especially during these trying times, and to learn more about the communications side of the industry. I hope to implement the skills I learn in this internship into my future career. I am very excited for this opportunity, and I cannot wait to spend my summer with the Tennessee Beef Industry Council!
