Thank You to Intern Jonathan Buhler
May 21, 2019
Jonathan Buhler is a senior at Rushville Consolidated High School. The school currently offers a Community Service Class that allows students to spend some time away from the school, during one class period, to assist a local business or organization. As part of this program, Jonathan has interned with 1st Choice Seeds for the last several months.
Mr. Schindel is the Community Service teacher at RCHS. He explained that senior students, who have completed the required courses for graduation, are eligible to enroll in the community service course. Mr. Schindel places the students at different organizations, in Rushville, that relate to the student’s interests or possible career paths. Students receive class credits for this course and hands-on experience from a local business. Rush County businesses also benefit from this program. Mr. Schindel expressed that he has always received positive feedback from our community, regarding both the program and the students.
During his internship, Jonathan has been working under the guidance of Mark Borden, Seed Specialist at 1st Choice Seeds. Jonathan has assisted on the soybean bagging line and helped prepare orders for shipping and delivery.
In June, Jonathan will graduate with Rushville’s Class of 2019. After graduation, Jonathan plans to work on his family farm, located in Rush County, Indiana. The Buhler family farm raises cattle and they grow alfalfa, corn, and soybeans.
1st Choice Seeds would like to thank Jonathan for his hard work this semester and congratulate him on his graduation!
