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

Jordan Lett, a resident of Hagerstown, is the son of Robert Lett and Sheri Shepherd. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Manchester University where he majored in political science and economics, and is currently attending Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis for a master’s degree in public affairs.

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

“This internship gives young professionals like Jordan the ability to gain first-hand experience with government on a state level,” Saunders said. “It’s always a treat to have folks from our area participate in our internship program and I encourage anyone interested to apply for it next session.”

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.
