The South Dakota Stockgrowers Association welcomed Kristen Fink as a summer intern on June 3. Fink just completed her junior year at South Dakota State University in Brookings, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in agriculture business.
Silvia Christen, Stockgrowers Executive Director said, “We’re very excited to have Kristen in the office with us this summer,” said Silvia Christen, executive director of the Stockgrowers. “I’m sure she’ll have an opportunity to learn a lot about how our grassroots organization works and about the world of agriculture policy from the perspective of our members across the state.”
“Growing up in western South Dakota has given me an appreciation for the dedication and devotion that farmers and ranchers have for agriculture,” Fink said. “This is a unique opportunity to get an in depth look at a great organization. I look forward to working with the staff and members of the Stockgrowers to promote agriculture in South Dakota.”
Fink, the daughter of Todd Fink and Brenda Fink, is a native of Prairie City, S.D. She graduated from Sturgis Brown High School in 2010, and will graduate from SDSU in May 2014.
