Davis College undergrads selected for internships in Washington D.C.
By: Norman Martin
Three specially-selected students from Texas Tech's Davis College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources will be spending their summer working as interns in Washington, D.C. Running from May through August, 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 Dean Clint Krehbiel. “The program is one of the most unique student programs that the college has for Davis College students.”
This year's Davis College Washington, D.C.-based summer interns include:
- Kade Miller, a senior animal science major from Panhandle, Texas (U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition & Forestry)
- Taylor Gillit, a junior agribusiness major from Holliday, Texas (U.S. Representative Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th)
- Keith Bottles, a junior natural resources management major from Dripping Springs, Texas (U.S. Representative Beth Van Duyne, R-TX 24th)
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.
