Collins
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - The Alabama Farmers Federation proudly announces the hire of Matt Collins as journalism intern. He is the son of Jimmy and Mary Collins of Cusseta.

Collins will be writing short articles and feature stories for Federation publications, including Neighbors magazine, as well as performing interviews and conducting research.

"Having grown up on a family beef cattle farm, Matt understands the importance of agriculture and has an appreciation for the farmers who produce our food and fiber," said Federation Communications Director Jeff Helms. "That background, combined with his journalism experience, should allow him to contribute greatly to our communication efforts as he continues his education."

Collins is a senior at Auburn University majoring in agricultural communications with a minor in leadership studies and expects to graduate in December. During his time at Auburn, he has taken many opportunities to gain experience outside of the classroom, including work at both the Auburn Plainsman and WEGL, the student radio station. Collins also has worked on live video production for both Auburn basketball and several graduation exercises, including the graduation this spring when Vice President Dick Cheney came to speak.

"I see this as another educational opportunity," said Collins of his internship. "I hope I am able to learn a lot as well as be of great service to the Farmers Federation."
