Q: What have you enjoyed most about being an intern at Valley Irrigation?
Sarah: I have enjoyed the very welcoming environment and working with people who constantly promote learning and challenging myself, but who also want nothing but to see me succeed. I have never felt like “just an intern.” I am treated as a peer, and my opinions are not only valued but also requested.
Q: Have you learned anything new or had an experience you want to comment on?
Sarah: I am taking on about ten projects that will actually have an impact on the company and allow me to gain valuable and diverse experiences in the process.

Each day is something different and interesting, and I am very excited to see where the rest of the summer takes me.
Q: What is a goal you want to achieve before graduating from college?
