Hello everyone! My name is Samantha Oborny and I am the new intern for the Nebraska Corn Growers Association. This fall, I will be a junior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I am majoring in Agricultural and Environmental Science Communications. I grew up on a farm in Garland, Nebraska where we raise corn, soybeans, and cattle. Growing up, I was heavily involved in 4-H and showed cattle with my siblings. Since coming to UNL, I have been able to get involved with various organizations including, Sigma Alpha sorority, the Ag Sack Lunch Program, the Corn and Soy Ambassador Program, as well as the Wheat Ambassador Program. In my free time, I enjoy going to concerts, watching sports, and hanging out with friends! 

I am very excited for the experiences and knowledge I will gain throughout this internship over the next year. I have had a passion for agriculture since a very young age and am thrilled to continue advocating for this industry!
