Two students participating in summer internship

SENECA – Two Seneca families are celebrating their sons becoming summer interns for GROWMARK.

Steven Beisswenger, agribusiness major at Illinois State University, and Ben Bergeson, a technical systems management major at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, were chosen for the internship program, according to a news release from GROWMARK.

Beisswenger is the son of Roy Beisswenger, of Seneca, and Bergeson is the son of Rich Bergeson, of Ransom, and Connie Bergeson, of Seneca.

Beisswenger will spend 12 weeks working for MIDCO Commodities, Inc. Bergeson will spend 12 weeks working for GROWMARK, Inc. Both will complete a special project coordinated through the company.

The men and 52 other interns will meet in August at GROWMARK headquarters in Bloomington to discuss their experiences and present a summary of their projects.

“Our internship program provides students hands-on experience in their field of study,” said Ashley McClintock, GROWMARK university relations manager in the release. "We hope it also provides them an opportunity to clarify their future career goals.”

GROWMARK is a regional cooperative providing agriculture-related products and services, as well as grain marketing in 31 states and Ontario, Canada.
