From the Globe Gazette in Forest City, Iowa:
ELY MINN. — When she started college, Madeline Aberg was certain about her career path. She’d study at Gustavus Adolphus College and would end up being a physical therapist when she launched her career.
Those plans, though, fell by the wayside when biology classes began. Aberg, a Forest City native and 2013 graduate of Forest City High School, ended up taking a few classes on ecology and animal behavior and suddenly becoming a physical therapist no longer had the same appeal. Now, working with animals and outdoors is Aberg’s new direction. To that end, she applied for a unique summer internship at the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota, and was selected as one of six wolf educator interns to join the staff. More than 50 people applied for the roles.
