College senior Gentry Allen will intern with the Alabama Farmers Federation’s Forestry and Wildlife divisions through April 20.
Allen will work on natural resources issues and update databases for the Alabama TREASURE Forest Association (ATFA), an affiliate group of the Federation.
“Growing up in Choctaw County gave me a great interest in forestry and wildlife,” Allen said. “I am hoping to learn all the ways ATFA and both divisions contribute to maintaining and growing our state’s forestland.”
Allen is a 2014 graduate of Patrician Academy in Choctaw County. He will graduate in May with a degree in business administration from Huntingdon College in Montgomery. He played safety for Huntingdon’s football team from 2014 to 2017.
He is the son of Steve and Beth Allen of Butler. Steve is an Alfa Insurance district manager, and Beth is a nurse practitioner director for the State of Alabama.
