Molly Witzel, Burlington, Colo., will join the American Angus Association as the public relations and communications summer intern. She will assist the department by writing press releases, designing brochures, traveling to shows, publicizing Angus events, taking photos and assisting in the Association’s multimedia public relations and communications efforts.

“I am looking forward to the challenge,” Witzel said. “This is an excellent opportunity to put my skills to the test.”

Witzel is an agricultural communications student at Oklahoma State University (OSU). On campus she is a member of Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow (ACT) and has served as a member of the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Student Success Leader Team.

“Molly will make a great addition to our team this summer,” says Eric Grant, director of public relations and communications. “Her creativity will be a real asset to our department. We’re looking forward to working with her.”

Witzel was raised on a small, family farm and commercial cattle operation near Kanorado, Kan. While growing up, she was an active Colorado 4-H member, showing and judging livestock.

After graduating from OSU in fall 2010, Witzel plans to pursue a master’s degree in agricultural education and stay actively involved in the agriculture industry.
