WASHINGTON, D.C. – A Chardon native was selected for an internship in the U.S. Senate. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that Jennifer Tuttle is serving as a legislative intern in Brown’s Capitol Hill office. Tuttle is currently pursuing a degree in International Relations and Politics at Carnegie Mellon University.
“Ohio students – like Jennifer – 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.”
“I am so honored to be able to work in Senator Brown’s Washington, D.C. office,” said Tuttle. “I have always admired him for the work that he does fighting for the people, and his work has had a huge impact on me as a student studying politics. To be able to see his office in action and work alongside his staff is an incredible opportunity.”
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.
