A Brigham Young University student serving an internship with Northwestern Mutual Life placed in the top 10 of the company's College Agents competition.

Cory A. Mahaffey, a graduate student from Kennewick, Wash., sold more than $2 million in insurance protection during the 1997-98 school year while working for the Roger McQueen Agency. That qualified him to be numbered among the top college salesmen in Northwestern Mutual Life's internship program, which was recognized this year by "The Princeton Review" as one of the top college internships in the country."The purpose of our program is less to sell product than to develop the person, both personally and professionally," said Michael Van Grinsven, Northwestern Mutual's assistant director for campus recruitment.
