The Alabama Farmers Federation welcomed Allison Glenn for an eight-week summer internship with its in-house meeting and event-planning team May 14.
The Troy University hospitality and tourism management student will assist with Federation and Alfa Insurance events through the Destinations Department.
“I’m excited to learn the corporate side of planning large-scale events,” said 20-year-old Glenn, a Lawrence County native. “I’ll get to see how meeting planning works in the real world, which is an invaluable experience.”
Glenn, who is minoring in event planning, will graduate from Troy in summer 2020. At Troy, she’s president of the Hospitality and Tourism Club and Eta Sigma Delta, the hospitality and tourism honor society. She is also student involvement representative for Troy’s yearbook, the Palladium.
“Allison will be an asset to our team as we prepare for events like the Federation Presidents Conference and Alfa incentive trips,” said Destinations Department Director Shane Watkins. “These experiences will supplement what she’s learned in the classroom and prepare her for a career in the hospitality industry.”
Glenn is no stranger to agriculture and the Federation. The daughter of Brian and Donna Glenn, she was raised on a row crop farm in Hillsboro. Her father serves on the state board as District 1 director. She graduated from West Morgan High School in 2017.
