Nebraska Program Benefits Both Interns and NCGA
With the generous support of the Nebraska Corn Board, college students from the Cornhusker State are joining the National Corn Growers Association as interns this summer to learn more about the industry.
NCGA is hosting two of the interns sponsored by Nebraska. Alyssa Jones is majoring in communication studies and political science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). She is interning with the NCGA office in Washington, D.C. Emily Keiser is interning with the NCGA office in St. Louis, Missouri. Keiser is majoring in agricultural education, communication and leadership at South Dakota State University.
“I applied for this internship because I wanted to expand my knowledge of the production side of the agricultural industry and focus on policy issues,” said Keiser. “I also appreciated the action NCGA takes to inform members and consumers about the current changes and actions of the industry that shape the industry as a whole.”
