BANGOR — Bethany Moore, a 2011 graduate of Jay High School, joined the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in Franklin County as a summer intern.

Moore got the internship when NRCS offered a position to a senior on the winning state Envirothon team. She has participated on Jay High School’s Envirothon team for the past four years.

Moore is a soil conservation aid in the Farmington office, working with staff on such activities as surveying pastures and testing soil for conservation practices, and working with the regional engineering and soil staffs. Moore will attend Boston University in the fall, majoring in engineering with a minor in environmental science.

Last year, Kristina Johnson was hired in the Lewiston office as an intern, and she returned for a second year. During her senior year of high school, she was on the Mount Ararat Envirothon team. She will be a sophomore at Cornell University in the fall and is majoring in environmental engineering.
