STATEHOUSE (Feb. 20, 2017) – Local graduates are gaining experience as interns with State Rep. Cindy Ziemke (R-Batesville) and her fellow members of the House of Representatives during the 2017 legislative session.

Emily Schebler, a resident of Batesville, is the daughter of Rob and Marta Schebler. A graduate of Batesville High School, Schebler is a recent Ball State University graduate who earned a bachelor’s degree and majored in political science and legal studies.

Emily Shaw, also a resident of Batesville, is the daughter of Steve and Amy Shaw. Also a graduate of Batesville High School, Shaw attends Purdue University where she is majoring in human services.

As legislative interns, Schebler and Shaw correspond with constituents through phone calls, letters and emails. Schebler and Shaw also help staff committee hearings and floor proceedings.

“This internship provides young professionals the opportunity to see how your state government operates while interacting with legislators and constituents on a daily basis,” Ziemke said. “I encourage any college students or recent graduates in my district who are interested in gaining valuable experience in state politics 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.
