Tilt-A-Whirl here, signing off at least for now

Today marks my last day with the N.C. State Fair through North Carolina’s State Government Internship Program. Though it is cliche to say, I can’t believe that my time at the fair has come to a close so quickly. I feel as though it was just yesterday that I met all the wonderful people that I’ve worked with here. The good news is that I will be back to assist the Deep Fried Crew during their busiest time before, during and immediately after the fair.

I know that my experience here will help me in my future career, but more importantly it has further sparked the passion that I have for public service. I’ve had the opportunity to blog both here and at the N.C. Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services blog, contribute to the fair’s social media efforts, craft a few news releases and coordinate a high school advertising campaign.

I hope to see you all at the fair in October, and I can’t wait to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the fair works. Though you’ll see my weekend updates through the end of the year, it’s time for me to sign off for now. Before I do, I want to say a big thank you to Flying Bob, Merrie Go Round, Firecracker, Bearded Lady and Blue Ribbon for being great teachers and co-workers over the course of the summer.

There’s something truly magical about the State Fair. I’ve experienced a taste of that magic this summer and it’s really been a privilege.

About Tilt-A-Whirl

Jeff Miles interned for the N.C. State Fair in 2011. This is his bio from that year: People usually call me Jeff Miles but when asked what my favorite part of Fair was, rides was the first thing that came to mind--so call me Tilt-A-Whirl from here on out. I've always been a big fan of the State Fair and I'm really excited to be working here this summer. I'll be bringing you weekly updates on the goings on at the fairgrounds and hopefully much more. I can't wait to see you all in October (and hopefully before)!
