Political Science Majors Selected to Intern at Tennessee General Assembly

Political science majors Katie Morse, Amber McCullough and Elizabeth Landolt were recently selected to serve as interns in the 107th Tennessee General Assembly. The Tennessee Legislative Intern Program was established in 1972 to provide Tennessee College and University students with an opportunity to work and learn in a hands on legislative environment. Each year, 70 to 80 students from around the state participate in this program to learn about leadership responsibilities as well as develop legislative process skills. Among other responsibilities, the interns assist legislative offices with their legislative activities and work functions. The Tennessee General Assembly convenes January 11, 2011.
