Hello, Nebraska Corn Growers!

I am Brooke Tempel, your new Nebraska Corn Growers Association intern for the next 2017-2018 year. I am going to be a senior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this coming fall. Where I am majoring in agricultural education with minors in agribusiness and horticulture. I grew up on an acreage west of Seward, NE. Growing up I was involved in 4-H and FFA. These programs sparked my interest in agricultural and persuaded me to pursue a career in agriculture. Although I never had the opportunity to grow up on a farm myself and personally experience the farm firsthand, I understand the impact that our local farmers and ranchers make in our community and world. I am excited to be able to advocate for our local producers and share their story through this internship. I look forward to learning about everything “corn” and to share it with others at our American Ethanol Nights at the races, baseball games, and other local events. I hope to meet some of you at local events this coming year!
