STATEHOUSE (March 14, 2018) — A Mooresville High School graduate is gaining experience as an intern with State Rep. John Young (R-Franklin) and his fellow members of the House of Representatives during the 2018 legislative session.

Sophie Shock, a resident of Mooresville, is the daughter of Thomas and Sharon Shock. She is a junior at Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis working toward a bachelor’s degree in communications with a minor in public affairs.

As an intern in the House Majority Communications Office, Shock helps draft press releases, create legislative handouts and assist with media relations.

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.

“Sophie is a bright individual with a genuine interest in the legislative process,” Young said. “It’s great to see young people involved at the Statehouse. The interns are essential in making sure things run smoothly throughout session. I would encourage all college students to consider this opportunity in the future.”
