STATEHOUSE (Feb. 16, 2017) – A local graduate is gaining experience as an intern with State Rep. Bob Cherry (R-Greenfield) and his fellow members of the House of Representatives during the 2017 legislative session.

Casey Upperman, a resident of Lapel, is the son of Gregg and Holly Upperman. A Lapel High School graduate, Upperman is a Ball State University student majoring in political science.

As a legislative intern, Upperman corresponds with constituents through phone calls, letters and emails. He also helps staff committee hearings and floor proceedings. 

“It is always exciting to see interns from our community working at the Statehouse,” Cherry said. “Interns like Casey are essential to keep things moving forward both on the House floor and behind the scenes. I encourage students in our area to look into this opportunity to gain experience, beneficial skills and an inside look at how our state government functions.”

The House of Representatives offers paid internship opportunities to college students, law-school students, graduate students and recent college graduates for the duration of each legislative session.
