WASHINGTON, D.C. – A student at The College of Wooster was selected for an internship in the U.S. Senate. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that Lincoln Plews is serving as a legislative intern in Brown’s Capitol Hill office. Meyer is currently pursuing a degree in International Relations, with a concentration in Economics.
“Ohio students – like Lincoln – 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 honored to have been chosen to intern in Senator Brown’s Washington, D.C. office,” said Plews. “I am looking forward to helping the Senator serve our country and the state of Ohio, particularly in his advocacy for a thriving economy.”
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.
