AgChoice Welcomes 2018 Summer Interns
June 08, 2018
This year’s interns represent three universities and will have the opportunity to work with AgChoice’s marketing, knowledge center, underwriting, lending and accounting teams.
Each summer, AgChoice Farm Credit hires a group of college students for a robust, hands-on internship that includes group projects, job shadowing and skill building.
“At AgChoice, we believe in a culture of collaboration and teamwork, and we give our interns that same opportunity,” said Darrell Curtis, AgChoice’s president and CEO. “We expect them to make tangible contributions to our operations while building their own professional skill sets.”

Cheyenne Altland of East Berlin, PA, will serve as the AgChoice Marketing/Knowledge Center in the AgChoice Headquarters Office, located in Mechancisburg, PA. Cheyenne currently attends York College of PA and will graduate Spring of 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing.
