WASHINGTON, D.C. – A Worthington native was selected for an internship in the U.S. Senate. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that Ross Griffin is serving as a legislative intern in Brown’s Capitol Hill office. Ross graduated in 2013 with a degree in Political Science.
“Ohio students – like Ross – 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.”
“It’s an honor to work with Senator Brown and his staff,” said Griffin. “He has a reputation as one of the most genuine and hardworking representatives in Congress and his dedicated staff reflect his work ethic. It’s very exciting to serve with them and assist them in working for Ohioans.”
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.
