Lincoln, Neb. —The West Central Research, Extension and Education Center has been busy this summer with the addition of two interns. Kourtnie Bokoskie and Megan Amos are the two communication interns at the WCREEC in North Platte.  

Kourtnie Bokoskie, of North Platte, is the daughter of Josh and Sarah Bokoskie  and started her role at WCREEC in early June. She has made several spotlight and feature videos of staff and events. Kourtnie is going to be a senior at North Platte High. In addition, she plans on attending college and majoring in business management and marketing with a focus on film and advertising design. Kourtnie explained that she loves the work atmosphere at WCREEC. “Everyone is very kind, understanding and helpful towards one another,” she said.

Megan Amos, of Stapleton, is the daughter of Jim and Kennetha Amos and began communications work at WCREEC a few weeks ago. Primarily, she is focused on writing articles and press releases. Megan is going to be a sophomore at the University of Wyoming, studying agriculture communications with a minor in agribusiness. She enjoys working at the WCREEC because she gets to promote the agricultural research and education that is important to the people in central Nebraska.

Megan and Kourtnie work under WCREEC Director Kelly Bruns and Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources Communications Specialist Natalie Jones. Together they have also managed the WCREEC social media accounts and updated the website.
