Now that it is September and college students are returning to campus, GPN and Nexus Greenhouse Corp. are again looking for that one special student to be the 2010 GPN/Nexus Intern of the Year.
This is the 11th year that GPN and Nexus have partnered to recognize a deserving, exceptional college student who has completed an floriculture-related internship.
Paul Jemison, our 2009 GPN/Nexus Intern of the Year, joined us at OFA Short Course in July along with his academic adviser, Dr. Kimberly Williams. Paul is finishing up his studies at Kansas State University this semester and is eager to get out into the “real world” and contribute to the industry.
Our 2008 GPN/Nexus Intern of the Year, Eric Pitzen, was also at OFA Short Course — but as an employee of Syngenta Flowers, where he is a trials coordinator (see “Syngenta Hosts Open House” on page 8).
