June 4:  With the generous support of the Nebraska Corn Board, two college students from the Cornhusker State are joining the National Corn Growers Association as interns this summer to learn more about the industry and provide valuable support to NCGA.


NCGA’s headquarters office in suburban St. Louis is hosting Sandra Kavan of Wahoo, Neb., as its first summer intern supported by a partnership between NCB and NCGA. Kavan will be a senior in agribusiness at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, and is assisting NCGA with membership and communication programs, as well as participating in committee meetings. She started with NCGA on May 14.


Starting this week, the NCGA Washington office is hosting David Bresel of Lincoln, Neb., as its summer intern. Bresel is a student in at the University of Nebraska College of Law, and will be involved with a variety of 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 have one in St. Louis also this year,” said NCGA Chief Executive Officer Rick Tolman. “We have always appreciated the intelligence, professionalism and dedication of these young men and women, and we are grateful to see this program expanded. These students get valuable experience in the field, and we benefit greatly from their time and perspective.”


Kavan and Bresel are two of five interns the Nebraska Corn Board is providing this year to its cooperating associations. Click here for more information.
