GreenStone Welcomes Summer Crop of Interns


GreenStone Farm Credit Services is hosting six student interns this summer, providing each with an opportunity to sharpen their skills in their respective career field. Five of the incoming interns will be based in the organization’s East Lansing, Michigan headquarters, while one intern will be based in GreenStone’s De Pere, Wisconsin branch.

GreenStone’s human resources specialist, Jonna Meyers, has spearheaded the organization’s internship program for three years and attends college career fairs to actively recruit top-tier talent to the internship program.

“GreenStone’s internship program has been very successful for both the cooperative and interns,” said Meyers. “For interns, it provides an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in their career field and for some, has even provided full-time employment following graduation; for GreenStone, it allows us to educate the next generation of agricultural leaders about our organization and the Farm Credit System.”

This summer’s intern class includes four juniors and two seniors with a variety of backgrounds and interests in the agriculture industry. Each intern will work approximately 14 weeks in their position before returning to school for the fall semester. In addition to real-world experience in the agriculture industry, GreenStone internship positions are also paid positions with the company.

The summer 2012 class of interns includes:
