With the generous support of the Nebraska Corn Board, two college students from the Cornhusker State have joined the National Corn Growers Association as interns this summer to learn more about the industry.
NCGA’s headquarters office in suburban St. Louis is hosting Lauren Stohlmann of Murdock, Nebraska, as their summer intern supported by a partnership between NCB and NCGA. Lauren will be a senior in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communications at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She will be primarily working with market development on the American Ethanol NASCAR sponsorship as well as participating in a variety of other communications and grassroots activities.
NCGA’s office in Washington, D.C. is hosting Colton Flower of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, as their summer intern supported by a partnership between NCB and NCGA. Colton will be a senior in Agricultural Education/Leadership with minors in Agribusiness-Entrepreneurship and Animal Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. During his internship, he will be involved with a variety of agricultural issues related to environmental regulations, transportation, free trade agreements, biotechnology, ethanol and energy.
“Nebraska has generously provided interns for our Washington office for some time, and we’re happy to welcome a fifth intern sent to our home office through this program,” said NCGA Vice President of Market Development Amie Gianino. “NCGA has always appreciated the intelligence, professionalism and dedication of these young men and women. While these students gain valuable experience in the field, we benefit greatly from their time and perspective.”
Stohlmann and Flower are two of five interns the Nebraska Corn Board is providing this year to its cooperating associations.
