Support Liz Austin and Family

Elizabeth Austin, an employee of Benson Hill Bio Systems, lost her husband, unexpectedly, on Friday, July 7, 2017.  His death has tragically impacted the family in a number of ways.  Not only are they mourning the loss of a husband and father, but the financial impact has been equally distressing.  Their home had already entered the foreclosure process and several bills, including car payments were already in arrears.  Elizabeth decided to go back to school in an effort to alleviate some of the financial burden and is currently in the process of completing her degree in Biotechnology.  As a result of this loss, she will now be the sole provider for her 3 children, Wyatt (16), Jacob (11), and Helen (10). 

Any support  for the Austin family would be a tremendous help!
