NASDA Welcomes Michigan State Student as Summer Intern

News Article -

NASDA is pleased to welcome Alex Noffsinger, a senior at Michigan State University, as their summer agriculture policy intern.

Alex, a native of the Lansing, Michigan area, is majoring in Social Relations & Policy and minoring in Science, Technology, and Environmental Public Policy. Alex spends his extra time getting involved with Kappa Alpha Pi Pre-Law Fraternity, running competitively for the MSU Running Club, and working for the Associated Students of Michigan State University. Prior to joining NASDA, Alex interned last summer with the U.S. Senate Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry Committee’s minority staff, working on issues ranging from crop insurance to food labeling. Alex has also completed an internship with the Michigan Legislature. While not directly studying agriculture, Alex has always had an affinity for agriculture. Growing up in a farming community with a mother and uncles involved in agribusiness, from a young age Alex came to appreciate the important role agriculture plays in the daily lives of all Michiganders and Americans. Alex looks forward to learning more about agricultural policy this summer while assisting NASDA’s staff and policy team in reaching their goals. Reach out to Alex at
