WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) applauded the efforts of the students who served Arkansas as interns in his Washington office this summer.
“These sharp and motivated students have been a great help to the people of Arkansas during their time in Washington. I appreciate their dedication to helping my staff address issues concerning Arkansans and providing vital services. They truly have taken advantage of the unique opportunities available to them in our nation’s capital,” Boozman said.
Alex Luelf, Beckett McDowell, Charlie Louree, Colin Keady, Cooper Monroe, Kate Covington, Nicholas Herlevic, Noah Sanders and Sarah Spakes completed a five-week internship in the senator’s Washington office.
