IL Corn is delighted to welcome two interns this summer to assist with policy and communication goals. Quickly becoming assets to the team, learn more about Brianna Croft and Emily Bruch.


Brianna CroftMeet Brianna

Brianna is from Normal, IL and currently attends Mississippi State University where she is studying Agribusiness with a Policy and Law concentration. She is also pursuing a minor in Environmental Economic Sustainability and will be going into her junior year.

She hopes to pursue a career centered around agricultural policy and legislation. These career goals are what led her to seek a position with IL Corn’s Legislative team to gain a deeper understanding of the agricultural policy making process and ways to advocate for farmers.

In her free time, you can find Brianna with her nose in a book, spending time with family and friends and enjoying being outdoors.


Meet Emily

Emily is from Granville, IL and is a senior at the University of Illinois. She is studying Agriculture Communications with a minor in Food and Agribusiness Management. Emily will be working with the communications team this summer assisting with Farm Progress Show, Illinois Ag in the Classroom and conservation communication campaigns.

She decided to join the IL Corn family because of IL Corn’s mission to help position farmers to grow. Agriculture has always been a strong passion of hers and she looks forward to being able to use her creative abilities in an agricultural environment.

In Emily’s free time, you can find her enjoying spending time with her one-year-old Miniature Australian Shephard, Maisy!


While Brianna is focusing on legislative tasks and Emily is focusing on communication projects, both will partner together in various IL Corn efforts throughout the summer. We look forward to teaching them all about IL Corn and watching them grow throughout their internship.
