STATEHOUSE (Feb. 26, 2018)  A Carmel High School graduate is gaining experience as an intern with State Rep. Jerry Torr (R-Carmel) and his fellow members of the House of Representatives during the 2018 legislative session.

Taylor Stergar, a resident of Carmel, is the daughter of Karen Hensel. She is a student at Ball State University earning her bachelor’s degree in legal studies.

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

“It is always a pleasure working with the students from our community,” Torr said. “Taylor is gaining experience and developing skills that can help further her career. I encourage those interested to look into this opportunity.”

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.
