SurePoint Ag Recognizes Summer Interns in Engineering Department

SurePoint Ag Engineering Internship Program

Each summer, SurePoint Ag selects a hand full of individuals who have either recently graduated High School or are already attending college that are interested in the field of agriculture.

This summer, five interns were selected, with four working in the Atwood, Kansas office and one in the SurePoint Innovation Center in Manhattan, Kansas. "Our interns got to work on special projects for the engineering department, while learning more about business practices, product development, and software programs," says Albert Popp, Engineering Department Manager. "They also got to assist with day-to-day functions of the growing engineering department at SurePoint Ag Systems and their sister company, SurePoint Electronics. We love getting to mentor young students and show them the ropes. A lot of interns end up working full time for us after they graduate."
