Pryor Welcomes Arkansas Summer Interns

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mark Pryor has welcomed twelve Arkansas students to Washington, D.C. for a five-week summer internship in his office.

“This internship gives Arkansas students an opportunity to better understand the legislative process and the importance of public service,” Pryor said. “I hope they’ll use the experience and insight they gain on Capitol Hill to help serve our state and nation.”

During the month of June, the students have assisted Senator Pryor with constituent services, legislative activities, communications, and administrative responsibilities. Each intern has also spent one day a week volunteering at Food and Friends, an organization that provides meals to people suffering from life-challenging illnesses.
