Davis College congressional Spring interns on the ground in Washington
By: Norman Martin
Three specially-selected students from Texas Tech's Davis College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources will be spending their Spring semester working as interns in Washington, D.C. Running from January through May, the college's congressional intern program affords these students an opportunity to experience first-hand the government's day-to-day operations.
"Intern selections are always an exciting and difficult process," said Davis College Interim Dean Cindy Akers. "The program is one of the most unique student programs that the college has for CASNR students."
This year's CASNR Washington, D.C.-based Spring interns include:
- Madelon Clark, a senior agricultural communications major from Menard, Texas (U.S. Representative August Pfluger; R-TX 11th District)
- Macie Miller, a junior agricultural education major from Holliday, Texas (U.S. Representative Ronny Jackson; R-TX 13th District)
- Joe Rosenwinkel, a junior landscape architecture major from Kingwood, Texas (U.S. Representative Kevin Brady; R-TX 8th District)
Davis College interns live in the 'Tech House' during their stay in Washington D.C., which is located just over a block away from the Capitol Building. Their living expenses are offset through scholarships from generous donors.
