Hi everyone, my name is Morgan Leefers and I’m the new intern for the Nebraska Corn Growers Association! I grew up on a family farm near Syracuse, Nebraska where my dad is a fourth-generation farmer. We grow corn and soybeans, have a small cow – calf operation, and raise feeder steers. I have grown up showing cattle in 4-H, playing softball, and helping on the farm. Next fall, I’ll be a junior at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. I’m majoring in Agribusiness with minors in Animal Science, the Nebraska Beef Scholars Program, and Agricultural Leadership Education and Communications. At UNL, I’m involved in several clubs and currently serve as the Scholarship Director for my sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta. I enjoy learning new things and meeting new people.

I have been passionate about agriculture since I was little and I’m excited to learn more about the industry through my internship experience. I look forward to meeting and getting to know many of you at events throughout the year. I know I have some big shoes to fill, but I’m up for the challenge!
