STATEHOUSE (Feb. 21, 2017) – Local graduates are gaining experience as interns with State Rep. Sharon Negele (R-Attica) and her fellow members of the House of Representatives during the 2017 legislative session.

Abigail Campbell, a resident of Veedersburg, is the daughter of Greg and Stephanie Campbell. She is a Fountain Central High School graduate and currently attends Indiana University where she is majoring in journalism. Hunter McGraw, a resident of Attica, is the daughter of Pat and Sherri McGraw. An Attica High School graduate, McGraw attends Purdue University where she is majoring in agriculture communications.

As interns in the House Majority Communications Office, Campbell and McGraw help write press releases, create legislative handouts and set up press conferences.

Kate Han, a resident of Lafayette, is the daughter of Tim and Kim Han. She attended McCutcheon High School and is a recent graduate of Liberty University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in health promotion and minor in psychology.

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

“This internship gives students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience with state legislators in a number of areas,” Negele said. “I highly encourage interested college students and recent graduates in our community to apply 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.
