New Summer Interns

We have a couple new faces at the Missouri Dept of Agriculture that you may be receiving a phone call, email or market visit from over the summer. Cassie St. Onge and Jana Haley are our new summer interns that are focusing on farmers’ markets, specialty crops, agritourism and local food projects.

Cassandra St.Onge is a Marketing Specialist Intern at the MDA. She’s a college student at Truman State University, majoring in Nursing. Cassie is looking forward to spending her summer promoting healthy foods from Missouri’s farmers markets and locally made products.

Jana Haley is also a Marketing Specialist Intern for the MDA. She is attending the University of Missouri – Columbia, where she is a sophomore majoring in Agriculture Education. Jana was raised on a family farm in Eldon. She believe that supporting local producers is important to Missouri’s agriculture industry and looks forward in visiting markets and farms over the summer.

Please help me welcome our new summer interns!
