STATEHOUSE (March 14, 2017) – A local graduate is gaining experience as an intern with State Rep. Bob Morris (R-Fort Wayne) and his fellow members of the House of Representatives during the 2017 legislative session.

Lewis Ostermeyer, a resident of Fort Wayne, is the son of David and Marianne Ostermeyer. He is a Snider High School graduate and currently attends Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne, where he is majoring in physics and political science.

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

“Lewis has been a great representation of our community during his time interning with the House,” Morris said. “Interns are able to experience the operations of state government firsthand through this program at the Statehouse and I encourage other students from our area to apply.”

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.
