Eppler joins congressional internship program
Kyle Eppler, a sophomore at Texas Tech University, is interning this fall in Washington D.C. in the office of Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas) as part of a College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Congressional Internship Program.
“There is no better way to obtain an understanding of our political mechanism than working in it,” Eppler said. “This knowledge is something rare in the field of wildlife, which I believe will set me apart and give me the upper hand when competing for future jobs.”
More than 65 students have served as interns since the establishment of the program.
Eppler, a range, wildlife and fisheries management major from Mason, is the son of Kurt and Camilla Eppler. He was named to the Dean’s List in 2005 and is a member of the Range, Wildlife and Fisheries Club.
The College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources’ Government Internship Program gives students the opportunity to work in congressional and legislative offices in Washington D.C. and Austin. In order to be eligible for the internship, students must have completed 30 hours of course work and have a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.0 at the time of the interview and internship.
