Klawock student Thaddeus Isaacs is one of ten Alaska students working in Senator Lisa Murkowski’s office for the second session of her annual summer internship program.
Selected students spend four weeks in Washington, D.C., where they learn to assist in daily operations of the U.S. Senate. The interns help Murkowski through clerical and administrative tasks, speak with constituents and assist with research projects.
Murkowski says students will have the opportunity to “shadow” her during meetings, hearings and sessions. She says she is excited to work with the students, and hope they will learn about the legislative process through their participation.
