The Rural Radio Network welcomes Hayes Center, Nebraska, native Rebel Sjeklocha as the 2020 summer intern.
Sjeklocha, a junior at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, is majoring in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communication and minoring in Engler Entrepreneurship, Business Law and International Agriculture.
Throughout the summer, she’ll be conducting interviews, writing stories, creating digital content and co-hosting Friday Five for the Rural Radio Network. She will be based out of the Nebraska Soybean Board Studios at Nebraska Innovation Campus in Lincoln.
Sjeklocha grew up on a cow-calf operation near Hayes Center. Her mom, Susan, is a veterinarian and her dad, Rusty, owns a commercial hay grinding business.
“I’m looking forward to networking with industry professionals and taking a hands-on approach to communicate with Nebraska’s agriculture producers,” Sjeklocha said of the internship.

The internship is made possible in partnership with the National Association of Farm Broadcasting, which offers internship grants to member stations and networks.
