WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator John Boozman applauded the efforts of talented college students interning in his Washington D.C. office for their service to the people of Arkansas.

“I appreciate the enthusiasm, commitment and dedication of these interns for the hard work they’ve done this summer alongside my staff and myself to address issues that affect Arkansas.
