HENDERSON, KY (4/19/12) – U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield, (KY-01), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power, recently welcomed a new intern in his Washington, D.C. office for the Spring 2012 semester. Ryan Brown from Henderson, Kentucky, has been an intern in Congressman Whitfield’s Office since January.
“Interning in my Washington office provides an excellent opportunity for young people from the First Congressional District to learn about the legislative process and get an up–close look into how Congress works,” Whitfield said. “Ryan has been such a great asset to the office in the few months he has been here. This is such an interesting and historic time in Washington, and I am pleased Ryan has joined us for this semester.”
Brown, a 2010 graduate of Henderson County High School, and now a sophomore at the George Washington University, is the son of Eric and Tracy Brown. During his internship, he has monitored Congressional hearings, assisted with constituent mail, performed policy research, and also assists with administrative duties in the office.
“Having the opportunity to intern in Congressman Whitfield’s office has most definitely been a unique experience,” Brown said. “As an intern, I have been able to learn a great deal more about the legislative process. Additionally, I have been able to experience the ins and outs of Congress, and see first-hand how Congress works.”
Congressman Whitfield invites college students from Kentucky’s First Congressional District to intern in his office in Washington, DC throughout the year during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.
