Crosswhite cracks the rankings' list for The Hill's 50 Most Beautiful People
TheHill.com has released its annual list of the '50 Most Beautiful' people inside the Beltway. Although many honorees come from the high-profile end of the political spectrum, a graduate of Texas Tech's Department of Animal and Food Sciences made the cut this year.
McKinney's Caleb Crosswhite (ranked 28th) graduated from Tech in 2011 with a bachelor's degree in animal science. In addition, he served as an intern on the House Committee on Agriculture that fall. Today, Crosswhite is a staffer on the House Committee on Agriculture by day and a George Mason University Law School student by night, and as busy as can be. But he hasn't forgotten his roots. He said he still enjoys judging livestock contests at county fairs outside of Washington.
The Hill's 11th annual most beautiful list recognizes the Beltway's "best-looking," relevant to the audience. So not necessarily all of the actually hot people around town are included, but the "most beautiful" members of Congress, Congressional staffers, campaign aides, lobbyists, other Capitol Hill personnel and executive branch employees. The list included high-profile standouts, including Sen. Rand Paul, Bret Baier, Kristen Welker and Sen. Cory Booker.
This year's list was selected from nearly 400 entries, includes 26 women and 24 men; 22 Democrats, 15 Republicans, and 13 other/undisclosed party affiliations; 17 House staffers, seven Senate staffers, five Representatives, five White House staffers, five lobbyists, five members of the media, two Senators, one Cabinet official, and three others more than half of whom are in their 20s, and going all the way up to their 60s.
Established in 1998, CASNR's congressional intern program affords selected students an opportunity to experience first-hand the government's day-to-day operations. CASNR interns live in the 'Tech House' during their stay in Washington D.C., which is located just over a block from the Capitol Building. Living expenses are offset through scholarships from generous donors, including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Texas Corn Producers Board, Plains Cotton Growers, Texas Corn Growers, Texas Peanut Producers, Dan Taylor, Texas Farm Bureau, and South Texas Cotton and Grain, as well as others.
