STATEHOUSE (April 14, 2021) – Evansville Central High School graduate Logen Sitzman is gaining experience as an intern with State Rep. Wendy McNamara (R-Evansville) and her fellow members of the Indiana House of Representatives during the 2021 legislative session.

Sitzman, an Evansville resident, is the son of Mark and Sandy Sitzman. He graduated from the University of Evansville with a bachelor's degree in communications in December 2020.

"I am grateful for this internship opportunity because I have the chance to watch Indiana's legislators work behind the scenes," Sitzman said. "Getting to see the ins and outs of the legislation is extremely rewarding."

As a legislative intern, Sitzman corresponds with constituents through phone calls, letters and emails while also staffing committee hearings.

"Gaining hands-on experience is a very important part of learning and developing the skills needed to be successful," McNamara said. "Our interns help so much throughout session, and I look forward to seeing where the future takes Logen."

Each year, the Indiana 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.
