Arkansas Tech University senior Cara Holland has a love for the great outdoors.
Holland is studying agriculture business and public relations at Arkansas Tech, and she will have a chance to utilize the skills she has learned as a Tech student during an internship with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
“I will be writing articles and assisting with events this summer during my internship. I’ll also have the chance to shadow the organization's photographer and videographer,” said Holland. “The opportunity is really varied and could include anything from spending time in the field to helping at the headquarters in Little Rock.”
Her main goal is to gain knowledge about ways to keep the Natural State a place that can be enjoyed for years to come.
“My main priority is gaining experience and knowledge about Arkansas wildlife and conservation efforts,” said Holland. “I am very excited to learn from the professionals at the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.”
Her passion for the outdoors stems from her upbringing in the state’s natural surroundings, and it is an opportunity she hopes to share with others.
“I grew up hunting and fishing all across Arkansas. It is part of my heritage and has helped shape me into the woman I am today,” said Holland. “I enjoy advocating for more women to get involved in the outdoors, and I hope to use this experience to help advance that objective and learn how to become a spokesperson for the outdoor industry.”
