STATEHOUSE (March 2, 2020) Triton Central High School graduate Caitlin Way is gaining experience as an intern with State Rep. Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville) and his fellow members of the Indiana House of Representatives during the 2020 legislative session.

Way is the daughter of Randy and Millie Way. She attends Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and is studying policy.

“Over the course of this session I have been able to experience the legislative process up close and learn valuable, hands-on skills that will benefit my career,” Way said. “This internship has provided me opportunities to build professional relationships with lawmakers and staff that will last a lifetime.”

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

“It’s encouraging to see students from the community setting themselves up for success and getting involved in state government,” Eberhart said. “Caitlin, along with all of our interns, are essential to help session run smoothly. I highly recommend interning with the House of Representatives. It is a great way to build new skills and gain real-world experience.”

Each year, 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.
