Tyson Foods Intern: Skyler McDermott

Jul 23, 2020 • Student News

Meet Skyler McDermott! McDermott is a senior majoring in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management and minoring in Marketing. On campus, McDermott is in the Morningside College Choir, works as a Sports Information Intern, and will be President of Business Honors in the fall. This summer, she is a Tyson Foods Summer Community Intern at the June E. Nylen Cancer Center.

At the June E. Nylen Cancer Center, McDermott is the Marketing and Fund Development Intern. She is responsible for updating social media sites and the center’s website, writing blogs and articles, planning for fundraisers, and creating various content.

McDermott hopes her internship will be the first stepping stone toward a future career.

“Going into my internship I didn’t really know what I wanted to do for a future career,” McDermott wrote. “I think by the end of my internship I will have a good idea of what I want my future job to look like.” 

Thank you to Tyson Foods, Iowa Campus Compact, and the June E. Nylen Cancer Center for making this experience possible for McDermott and all the Tyson Foods Summer Community interns.
