sarah hendley1PADUCAH, KY (4/20/12) – U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield, (KY-01), Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power, welcomed a new intern from the First Congressional District in his Washington office for the Spring 2012 semester. Sarah Hendley, from Paducah, Kentucky has been interning and experiencing government first-hand since January.
 
“Interning in my Washington office provides students from the first district a hands-on approach to learning about the legislative process and allows young people to witness government in action,” said Whitfield. “Sarah has been a great addition to the office in the months she has been interning. It is an interesting and historic time in Washington, and I am so glad Sarah was able to take part working for the First District’s needs.”
 
Hendley, a 2011 graduate of St. Mary High School and current freshmen at the Catholic University of America, is the daughter of Missy and Stan Eckenberg and Steve Hendley. She worked as a United States Senate Page during her junior year in high school, where she developed her interest in politics. During her internship with Congressman Whitfield, Sarah has assisted with constituent mail, performed policy research, and assisted with administrative duties in the office.
 
“Interning with Congressman Whitfield’s office has been a great experience,” said Hendley. “By working in his office, I have been able to observe the federal government from a different point of view and gain valuable experience for the future. Additionally, I have enjoyed working to better the District, even when I am so far from home.”
 
Congressman Whitfield invites college students from the Kentucky’s First Congressional District to apply to intern in his Washington, D.C. office in the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.
