Josh Cooper is the newest addition to the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) accounting department. Having just finished his junior year at University of Missouri – Columbia, Josh is studying accountancy and will receive both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the spring of 2025. While at school, Josh became a member of Theta Chi fraternity where he had the opportunity to be involved with homecoming activities as well as sponsoring a miracle child through a charity called MizzouThon. In his spare time, Josh enjoys playing basketball and hanging out with friends.  


“Accounting, HR and Administration Director Marie Nelson piqued my interest in working within the world of corn as it is an industry that I do not know much about,” said Cooper. “I am grateful for the opportunity to work with everyone at NCGA and learn more about the ag industry this summer.”


While interning with NCGA this summer, Josh will be focusing on accounts payable, accounts receivable, journal entries, bank and account reconciliations.
