Delaware Farm Bureau (DEFB) has hired three summer interns to help promote DEFB and Delaware agriculture. The interns, Beau Davis, Sam Jacona, and Kira Manuszak, bring a vast abundance of experience and knowledge. DEFB is excited to see what they accomplish this summer. Some of their large projects include DEFB member promotional videos, social media content creation, and educational events.

Beau Davis
Beau Davis, of Milford, grew up on her family’s farm, where she developed a deep-rooted passion for agriculture. Her early experiences instilled in her a love for the land and a commitment to the agricultural community. Through her internship, Davis aims to make new connections and promote Delaware agriculture, focusing on showcasing the hard work and dedication of Delaware farming families.

Before graduating from Milford High School in 2022, Davis was actively involved in FFA and 4-H. She also showed livestock at the Delaware State Fair. Additionally, she worked as a sales associate and field scout during the past two summers, further expanding her knowledge and practical skills in the agricultural industry.

Now a junior at the University of Delaware, Davis is majoring in Agriculture and Natural Resources. She remains deeply engaged in agriculture through her involvement in the university’s FFA, 4-H, and the Agriculture College Council. Through her internship with the Delaware Farm Bureau, Davis hopes to expand her already diverse agricultural background and support the agricultural community.

Sam Jacona
Sam Jacona, a Milton resident and 2021 Milford High School graduate, hopes to expand her knowledge of agriculture and marketing as a DEFB intern. She is particularly interested in learning how to tailor her graphic designs to specific audiences to make a large impact.

Jacona has experience in direct marketing, having grown produce to sell at a farm stand and the downtown Milton farmer’s market. She wants to learn more about supporting other farmers and advocating for agriculture.
Currently a senior at Arcadia University, Jacona is majoring in fine arts with an emphasis on graphic design. Over the past three years, she has accomplished a great deal, including participating as a field hockey player, esports participant, honors president, Honors Shadow Play director, studio supervisor, and study abroad mentor for South Korea.

After studying abroad in Seoul, South Korea at EWHA Woman’s University, Jacona plans to learn Korean. Her future aspirations also include working in the music industry as a graphic designer.

Kira Manuszak
Kira Manuszak, of Dover, is one of the DEFB interns, hoping to expand her knowledge in videography, photography, marketing, and Delaware agriculture. Although she has shown horses for most of her life and has been involved at her family’s farm, she is eager to learn more about other agricultural industries.

A 2022 graduate of Calvary Christian Academy, Kira Manuszak is now a junior at the University of Valley Forge, majoring in sports management with a minor in marketing. She is part of the accelerated 4+1 program, which allows her to earn both her bachelor’s degree in sports management and a master’s degree in organizational leadership within five years. Her future plans include combining her interests to work in sports marketing.

Throughout her college career, Manuszak has been very active. She has served as a student ambassador, community service leader, student leader, intramural sports participant, admission student worker, and athletics assistant. Additionally, she has represented her university as a student representative, traveling to New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
