University of Missouri Extension in Atchison County will have an intern in the office this summer.

Brianna Justice, from Oregon, Missouri, will be working at the MU Extension center in Rock Port from mid-May to early August. During her internship, Justice will be learning about MU Extension’s mission of delivering research-based information to the public by helping specialists and staff with programs and projects.

Justice’s supervisor will be Amie Schleicher, field specialist in livestock with MU Extension. “We’re excited to have Brianna here for the summer. She has a great attitude, is professional, enthusiastic, and helpful, and will be a great asset to MU Extension in Atchison County,” says Schleicher. “Her passion for, and background in, agriculture and 4-H makes her an especially good fit for the office and the area.”

Justice was an active 4-H member in Kansas with numerous projects including livestock, photography, sewing, and woodworking, and was also active in FFA in the Stewartsville and South Holt chapters during high school.

She graduated this month with an associate’s degree in applied science – agriculture and natural resources from North Central Missouri College in Trenton. After completion of the internship, she plans to begin a career in an ag-related field.
