How I Became a Intern
July 1, 2016

 

My name is Lexi Moffett, I have lived in the Panhandle for most of my life. I have two younger sisters, Madison and Jace.┬áMy dad, John Moffett is the head baseball coach at Claude High School. My mom, Alicia Hughes is a Reading Interventionist at Canyon intermediate. I heard about Ogallala┬áCommons from my principles in business teacher Marcie Cook. She told earlier in the school year and I thought it would be a great opportunity for me. Then later in the school year Darryl Birkenfeld came to talk to my class as a guest speaker, he told us all about the great opportunities Ogallala Commons has to offer. That is when I was sold on being an intern. 20140802_182424Before I went to the Talon Point retreat I knew nothing about what I was doing, I didn’t even know anyone. I was so scared! At the retreat Darryl came to me and told me that I could possibly be an intern at the Chamber of Commerce in Canyon. The next day he introduced me to Justin. I am now an intern for Justin and his wife at their farm. The farm consist of lots of chickens and a few goats. Every morning when I arrive at the farm I feed the chickens and goats. Then when all the animals are cared for I join Justin and his wife in the various projects on the farm. This past week I built a butcher room. So far I have loved being an intern and looking forward to doing it again next year!20160625_160334[1]
