Idaho State University-Meridian student Jacob Burger is being honored this month by the Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Burger has been chosen as the ISU-Meridian Outstanding Dietetic Intern. Burger is originally from Hillman, Michigan, and came to Boise from Central Michigan University.
He was nominated by Barbara Gordon, program director for dietetic programs at ISU.
“Jacob has been a great asset to the internship and has earned top praise from all of his preceptors,” Gordon said in a release from ISU-Meridian. “All of Jacob’s preceptors have appreciated his willingness and enthusiasm to take on a multitude of different projects. He strives to do his best with all of his assignments and his preceptors described him as positive, professional, polite and a pleasure to work with. He is extremely dedicated to his internship and learning experiences, and has exceeded expectations.”
Gordon said Burger has blended well with his fellow interns and has brought a unique humor to the class, sharing his life experiences and stories.
“We are proud to have Jacob as a graduate of the ISU-Meridian internship,” she said.
