Tyson Foods Intern: Katie McClintock

Aug 24, 2020 • Student News

Meet Katie McClintock! McClintock is a senior Elementary Education major. On campus, McClintock is involved with the Iowa Student Education Association, Kappa Delta Pi, Theta Alpha Kappa, Campus Ministries and Breakthrough. This summer, she was a Tyson Foods Summer Community Intern at the Norm Waitt Sr. YMCA.

At the Norm Waitt Sr. YMCA, McClintock was a supervisor at the Summer Care camp for children Pre-K through fifth grade. She saw that all daily camp activities run smoothly, delivered snacks to each classroom, and ran each day’s checkout process. McClintock also said she finds planning the daily themes and activities to be exciting. 

“I enjoy learning new organizational skills that I can apply at my internship and will use in my career,” McClintock wrote. “[This internship] is teaching me new ways to help children be successful.”

Thank you to Tyson Foods, Iowa Campus Compact, and Norm Waitt Sr. YMCA for making this experience possible for McClintock and all the Tyson Foods Summer Community interns.
