WASHINGTON, D.C. – A Cleveland student was selected for an internship in the U.S. Senate. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that Thomas Corrigan is serving as a legislative intern in Brown’s Capitol Hill office. Corrigan is currently pursuing a degree in international relations at Georgetown University.
“Ohio students – like Thomas – exemplify how strong families, teachers, and Ohio communities continue to produce the next generation of world-class leaders,” Brown said. “An internship allows students from either Ohio schools or Ohio communities to serve their state while gaining invaluable experience by working on a wide range of projects.”
“Senator Brown is one of my personal heroes because of his tireless fight for middle-class Ohioans in the U.S. Senate,” Corrigan said. “Senator Brown is not only a great legislator; he is also an honest and genuine person who goes to work every day with Ohio’s best interests at heart.”
Interns work alongside staff members to address constituent requests and concerns. In Washington, D.C. a typical day could include speaking with constituents on the phone, greeting visitors to the office, organizing incoming correspondence, attending Senate committee hearings and briefings, and leading tours of the U.S. Capitol Building.
Students may earn college credit in addition to the educational benefit and professional development opportunities.
