In July, Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV) welcomed back 2018 summer intern, Daniel Scott, to assume a full-time Generalist position. Scott will be working out of the Harrisonburg branch.
Scott grew up in Bedford County, VA where his family owns and operates a beef cattle farm. He was an active member of both the FFA and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) in high school.
Scott graduated from Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) in May 2019 with a Business Administration degree and a Minor in Accounting and Human Resources. While at EMU, Scott played baseball where he served as team captain for two years.
In regards to what he looks forward to bringing to the FCV team, Scott shared, “I’m excited to bring my energy and teamwork mentality to the Farm Credit team. Four years playing baseball at EMU instilled these traits and I look forward to employing them to motivate those around me and providing the best possible service to our customers-owners.”
During Scott’s 2018 summer internship with FCV, he got the opportunity to tour our footprint, and learn the ins and outs of our association as well as the overarching Farm Credit System, he said, “I’m joining the team with a thorough understanding of the Farm Credit System, which I attained during my internship. That will position me to really hit the ground running in my new role.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Daniel to our team,” said Scott’s supervisor and FCV Credit Manager, Brad Hewitt. “Daniel’s experience as a summer intern and his passion for agriculture will allow him to make immediate contributions to serving our customer-owners.”
