At NuWay-K&H Cooperative, our people are our greatest asset. It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you three new and talented employees: Jessika Bingamon, Trenton Guidry, and Stephanie Reagan.

Jessika Bingamon

Just a few days after Thanksgiving, Jessika started her job as cook at our Thompson store. Though new to the cooperative, Jessika is not new to cooking. Her previous job involved cooking for the Buffalo Center school system and she has been cooking in restaurants since she was 16.

A native of Montana, Jessika likes being at home on her days off. She has four children. “I like going to work early and that I’m done early in the day,” she states, adding. “I also like the people I work with.

What is a good day for Jessika? “A good day is when I get all my tasks done before it is time for me to leave the store,” she says.

Trenton Guidry

An experienced applicator, Trenton joined NuWay-K&H Cooperative early in January of this year. In addition to applying our customers’ fields, he’ll be working in the shop and providing general labor for agronomy operations.

Born in Louisiana, Trenton has worked as a service tech on production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. As to his application experience, he broke records for the number of acres applied while working for an earlier company.

Trenton says he likes nature and being out in the field all by himself. “High quality work” is his stated goal as an agronomy operations employee with NuWay-K&H Cooperative.

Stephanie Reagan

In early January, NuWay-K&H Cooperative hired Stephanie as assistant manager of its retail store in Algona, IA. Before that, she drove truck over the road from the East Coast to the West Coast. “I have a Class A CDL,” she explains.

Stephanie is familiar with customer service, having worked at a Welton, IA truck stop and for multiple retail stores. “I’m originally from San Diego, CA.,” she says. “I moved to Iowa when I was 13 years old and have now lived in Iowa over half of my life.”

After hours, Stephanie loves hanging out with her 14-year-old son, her boyfriend and her family—and bowling. Her mom lives in Wesley, IA.

Besides her extensive experience in customer service, Stephanie says she likes helping people and is very reliable. “When I go home with a big smile on my face,” she says, “it’s because I did something successful.”
