Sprouting New Talent: Meet Latham Seeds’ Summer Interns

We are excited to welcome not one, but two talented summer interns to our Latham team this year! Jett Fridley is working with us as our Sales Agronomy intern, and Maycee Wilkie is working with our Marketing Department — just in time for Dealer Kickoff.

A little about Maycee:


Maycee Wilkie

Maycee is a public relations major at Iowa State University with a minor concentration in event management. She grew up in Clear Lake, where she was active in several FFA leadership roles and wrote for the FFA Reporter.

During the academic year, Maycee works in ISU’s financial aid office as a digital marketing and communications assistant. She is responsible for developing brochures, website content and articles that inform students on financial aid opportunities and improve financial literacy.

Maycee learned about Latham Seeds in high school, when Shannon Latham toured their greenhouse and FFA program. She’s excited to step back into the “ag” world while learning more about the strategic side of marketing. Upon graduation, Maycee would like to find a job where she can raise awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

“God instilled a passion in me to advocate for those living with ALS after my dad passed away from it,” Maycee says. “It is my mission to do just that through communications or marketing.”

A little about Jett:


Jett Fridley

Jett is a junior at Iowa State University studying agricultural business with a minor in animal science. He is from Muscatine.

Jett has also interned with River Valley Cooperative, where he learned about the services that cooperatives offer. It was there that he found colleagues who were passionate about their work, which translated into exceptional customer service.

He sees that same passion at Latham Seeds, and says he looks forward to working with experienced sales team members to learn more about the company’s products.

“I’m also looking forward to working alongside farmers and learning more about their operations, while showing support for the Latham brand,” Jett says.

Please join us in welcoming Jett and Maycee to the Latham family business!
