ARLINGTON, VA -- Josie McLaurin joined USA Rice this week as an intern with the Government Affairs team and will be working out of the Arlington office through August 10. A Tennessee native, Josie is a current student at Mississippi State University (MSU) working towards a B.S. in Ag Business Policy and Law, and also serves as president of the MSU Agricultural Economics Club.
While in Washington this summer, Josie is participating in the William A. Demmer Scholars Program where students have the opportunity to earn credit hours while interning, taking classes, and attending weekly Saturday field trips around the city. Through this program and her USA Rice internship, Josie hopes to learn her way around the D.C. Metro system, gain more knowledge about the ag policy sector and hopefully see a Farm Bill get passed!
