High Plains Interns Learn in D.C.

- WASHINGTON, D.C. --  Interns play a vital role in Washington, D.C., so much so, that some might even say they are the glue that holds the Capitol together.
    That's the case of two High Plains interns who helped local Congressman Mac Thornberry.   
    Lauren Young and Jill Bramlet have been working in the House of Representatives all summer long.
    Young is from Quitaque, and Bramlet is from Canyon.
    These young politicians have been giving tours of our Capitol and even work alongside Congressman Thornberry!
        Jill Bramlet said, "I really enjoyed giving tours of people from the area - it was kind of a sign from home. Even though I didn't know them I already felt a connection with them because we were from the same area."
    The interns will be returning home at the end of the summer with bags packed full of knowledge to share with their friends.
