OKLAHOMA CITY — Camryn Lucas has recently joined Oklahoma Farm Bureau as a summer intern.
Over the summer, Lucas will learn more about Farm Bureau’s efforts to serve agriculture and rural Oklahoma as she works alongside various departments throughout the organization.
She will travel with field representatives, learn the inner workings of the public policy team, assist the communications team with various projects, participate in grassroots membership meetings and more.
“I am excited to learn what advocating for agriculture looks like and means on a larger scale than what I am able to do on my own,” she said.
A native of Central High, Oklahoma, Lucas and her family are longtime Farm Bureau members. She grew up on a small sheep operation along with a few crops, such as Sudan grass and wheat. She is currently studying agribusiness and agricultural economics at Oklahoma State University.
Through her summer internship, Lucas said she hopes to gain more experience in serving farmers, ranchers and rural Oklahomans.
“I’m excited to connect with agriculturalists across the state,” Lucas said. “I hope to make meaningful connections and gain mentors along the way.”
Oklahoma Farm Bureau is a grassroots farm organization with more than 80,000 members throughout all 77 Oklahoma counties. As the state’s leading agricultural organization, Farm Bureau is committed to improving the lives of rural Oklahomans through advocacy, education and member benefits.
