Summer Internship

Meet the 2019 Summer Intern!

My name is Sean Welch, and I am proud to be working this summer at the Knox County Farm Bureau. I am the son of Michael and Teresa Welch of Knoxville, Illinois. I graduated from R.O.W.V.A. High School in May of 2018 and am currently studying Agriculture Education at the University of Illinois in Champaign, Illinois. In High School I was heavily involved in FFA at the chapter, section and state levels and I have seen first hand the impact the Farm Bureau has on the Agriculture Industry. These experiences with the Farm Bureau left a profound impact on me, and so after college I hope to work in Illinois as a County Farm Bureau Manager. This Internship will allow me to learn all that is expected from someone in that position. I know I have a lot to learn this summer, and I look forward to a very rewarding experience serving the members of the Knox County Farm Bureau.
