MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Corn Program is proud to announce the founding of its sister organization – the Wisconsin Corn Foundation, Inc.
The new foundation has been established with the goal of providing scholarships and funding for students to attend educational events such as Wisconsin Corn/Soy Expo and Commodity Classic.
The inaugural board of directors consists of: Mark Hoffmann – President, Casey Kelleher – Vice President, Ryan Ripp – Secretary/Treasurer, Mike Berget, Jim Birchman, Luke Goessling, Bill Rohloff, Randy Woodruff and ex-officio members Andy Grebner and Joe Lauer.
“The Wisconsin Corn program has always been dedicated to educating consumers, legislators and producers as to the value of Wisconsin corn,” says Mark Hoffmann, Wisconsin Corn Foundation President. “The Wisconsin Corn Foundation was the next logical step as we look to support and invest in the next generation of Wisconsin corn growers.”
The Wisconsin Corn Foundation is being featured this week at the 2019 Wisconsin Corn/Soy Expo in the Wisconsin Dells. Attendees are welcome to bid at the organization’s silent auction to benefit students from across the state.
