WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) this week met with Sarina Tacovic, a Centerville native and a senior at The Ohio State University (OSU), where she studies Public Affairs. Tacovic, who attended Brown’s weekly coffee with constituents, is interning at the U.S. Department of Commerce this semester as a John Glenn Fellow through OSU’s Washington Academic Internship Program.

“It was an honor to meet with Sarina,” Brown said. “Exceptional students like Sarina exemplify the intelligence and drive fostered at Ohio colleges and universities.”

John Glenn Fellows spend a semester in Washington, D.C. exploring public policy in their individual academic interest areas. Participants receive academic credit for completion of an internship, a policymaking and public service course, and a policy paper developed through a research seminar. The Washington Academic Internship Program is run by OSU’s John Glenn College of Public Affairs and is open to all majors.
