Greetings fellow interns, supervisors, and OC staff,
I haven’t identified all of the key assets, only a few of them in the course of this internship. I recently interned with Happy Cole with the Tulia Chamber of Commerce. I have found out that the Chamber is the education of the community. Mr. Cole’s job is the information center of the community. People that are in the community or interested in the community contact the chamber for local businesses and organizations. This job is important to the community because of the vast amount of energy and time the director and the secretary put in to satisfy the people that are in the community and those who are interested in the community. The second asset is community service. Extension puts in countless hours dedicated to community service and helping others.
I have not identified any more assets as I am only half way through with my intern experience, and still searching for the remaining assets in my community. I believe that the health and wellness is with the hospital district. Without the hospital district, the community would not be informed of diseases and illnesses that could be spread by poor hygiene habits. As I go along with the rest of my intern ship, I hope to find and observe the remaining assets and make note of them. I look forward to reading other posts and receive feedback from supervisors and staff members. I look forward to sharing my experiences for the next blog soon.
