I am employed with Sanderson Farms Hatchery currently as a production worker.

I worked closely with management dealing with budgets, payroll, time management, paperwork, and employee disciplinary circumstances. I resigned from the Crew Leader position upon enrolling into college as a full time student. As a production worker I am responsible for correct broiler house placement of chicks along with maintaining ideal temperature settings for newly hatched chicks.

I was enrolled in Honor courses throughout High School as part of the Advanced Placement Program. I graduated with Honor status along with various awards.


I enjoy being a part of a team, whether it is a workforce team, sports team, or a lab group at school. I enjoy any activity involving the outdoors such as fishing, hunting, ATV riding or just enjoying a day at the park with my kids. I am currently in the process of rebuilding my first motorcycle a 1988 Harley Davidson Sportser 883 which I can not wait to hop on and ride.


My name is Amanda Aileen Haycraft, I live in Laurel, MS with my husband of ten years David. We have two children Hunter age 12 and Haden age 5. I stay very busy between working full time and being a full time student. I have finally been given the oppurtunity of furthering my education after 11 years. I have been very fortunate to maintain good grades, I currently maintain a 4.0 grade point average. I am enrolled in core courses that are required for acceptance into Jones County Junior College's Nursing Program.
