Davis College congressional fall interns on the ground in Washington, D.C.
By: Norman Martin
Three specially-selected students from Texas Tech's Davis College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources are spending their fall semester working as interns in Washington, D.C. Running from September through December, 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 Davis College students."
This fall's Washington, D.C.-based interns include:
- Denny Atchley, a junior dual agriculture and applied economics/business administration major from Las Cruces, New Mexico (National Cattleman's Beef Association)
- Cason Lutrick, a senior agricultural communications major from Godley, Texas (U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar, D-TX-28th District)
- Emily Matthews, a senior agricultural communications major from Kaufman, Texas (U.S. Representative Ronny Jackson, R-TX-13th 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.
