As the summer winds down, we will say farewell to our Merchants interns later this week. We have had a wonderful summer with them in our offices and appreciate all of their hard work. This year we had eleven interns serving Merchants Bank of Indiana, Merchants Capital, and Farmers-Merchants Bank of Illinois. Over the course of the summer, the interns gained real work experience by working closely with their mentors. They participated in special projects and voiced their ideas. The day to day experience gave them an opportunity to engage in concept-to-production tasks and problem-solving. They also participated as MPACT program volunteers serving meals to the residents at the St. Vincent House.
