Alabama Farmers Federation intern Cameron Humphrey spent four weeks this summer in the organization’s Montgomery home office focusing on agricultural policy after seeing the legislative process firsthand in Washington.
The Auburn University (AU) senior worked in the office of U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala., through a four-week internship funded by the Alabama Farmers Agriculture Foundation. The Birmingham native was in the capital when the U.S. House passed its version of the farm bill in June.
“Working in D.C. reinvigorated my love for public administration and Congress,” said Humphrey, 21. “I have a growing interest in the ins and outs of agricultural policy and further increased that knowledge in Montgomery this summer.”
The Federation’s Mitt Walker praised Humphrey’s work ethic.
“Cam is an exceptional student,” said Walker, the Federation’s National Legislative Programs director. “His work in D.C. laid a great foundation in ag policy. We built on that as Cam assisted in following federal policy impacting our farmers.”
Humphrey graduates in May 2019 in agricultural business and economics with a political science minor.
At Auburn, he is president of the College of Agriculture’s Ag Ambassadors. After graduation, he plans to attend law school and pursue a career in politics.
Humphrey is the son of Yoni and Robert Humphrey. n
