Honeyman said she’s able to achieve all of these things with time management and help from her understanding employer, who worked around her schedule this summer to allow her the opportunity to intern for the chamber.

“I am very thankful for Kennedy’s,” Honeyman said. “They have been wonderful and worked with me every step of the way.”

As far as interning for the Chamber, Honeyman’s major task was overhauling their website. Now that the website is completed, she updates it weekly.

Honeyman is also preparing for a Sunday Funday, games on main event, which was scheduled for Sept. 23 but has been postponed.

“We’re hoping to make that a monthly thing if we get a good turn out on that,” Honeyman said. “That’s my biggest project.”

Honeyman said they received a grant through the AARP, which allowed the chamber to purchase outdoor games like cornhole, washer toss and big Jenga.

No makeup date has been announced for the event.

“It’ll be just like a community day. Just come out when you want too,” Honeyman said. “Come play some games, come check out Centennial Square now that we got the lumber and the railroad ties taken out. We have a lot more space now.”

Honeyman said she also runs the social media pages along with Jasmin Fosheim, the director of the Hettinger Chamber of Commerce and the Economic Development Corporation.

“It’s Jasmin and I on the account,” Honeyman said. “It’s pretty much my job to post on social media and make sure everything is up to date. So, anything you see on Facebook or Instagram is either Jasmin or myself posting.”

Honeyman said she has thought a lot about what she is going to major in after high school. She’s considering business management and/or human resources. She’s contemplating majoring in one and minoring in the other. Honeyman would also like to get some sort of degree in digital marketing or graphic design as well.

“I’m leaning toward a major in business administration and a minor in human resource,” Honeyman said. “I choose human resource and business management because it’s a pretty broad degree. You can work anywhere from a hospital to a school to a car dealership.”
