Mobile Natives Complete Summer Internships
Emma Goodloe and William Kelly, both Mobile natives, recently completed summer internships in the Washington, D.C. office of Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL).
During their internships, they assisted with legislative and administrative tasks including answering the phones, giving visitors tours of the U.S. Capitol, assisting with research, running errands, and attending hearings.
Congressman Byrne said: “I appreciate all the work Emma and William did this summer to help support our office and the people of Southwest Alabama. They were both a true joy to work with, and I wish them all the best as they complete their studies.”
Goodloe is a senior at the University of Georgia, where she is majoring in Public Relations with a minor in Public Affairs Communication. She is planning to graduate from the University of Georgia next May.
Goodloe said: “I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to serve Alabama’s First District alongside Congressman Byrne and his staff for the past few weeks. This opportunity exceeded all my expectations and has paved the way to the beginning of my career in our nation’s capital. I am very grateful to Team Byrne and could not have asked for a better office to intern with.”
Kelly is a senior at Auburn University, where he is majoring in Finance. He is planning to graduate next May.
Kelly said: “Working alongside Congressman Byrne and his staff has been an incredible experience. It is truly inspiring to be around a representative who deeply cares for his constituency and advocates on behalf of citizens on a daily basis. Witnessing Congressman Byrne’s integrity and servant leadership has motivated me to better myself and serve those around me.”
Congressional internships are a valuable experience for students interested in the legislative process or the federal government. Congressman Byrne accepts interns throughout the year.
