STATEHOUSE (Feb. 23, 2018) — A New Albany High School graduate is gaining experience as an intern with State Rep. Karen Engleman (R-Georgetown) and her fellow members of the House of Representatives during the 2018 legislative session.

Kayla Trambaugh, a resident of Memphis, is the daughter of Kevin and Patty Pinaire. She is currently attending Marian College where she is studying for her bachelor’s degree in political science with a minor in global studies.

“I enjoy seeing the strong work ethic of these young adults,” Engleman said. “Interns are an essential addition to our staff on the House floor and behind the scenes during the legislative session. I want to express what an amazing opportunity this is for students and residents of Floyd County that want to get involved in making a difference.”

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

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.
