Washington, DC—U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) today welcomed William Torness of Sisseton to his Washington, DC internship program. A graduate of Sisseton High School, Torness is the son of Bill and Peg Torness of Sisseton and the grandson of Mary Torness of Sisseton. Torness is a junior at the University of South Carolina where he majors in Media Arts.
“Internships are a great way for students to gain valuable insight into the political process in Washington,” Johnson said. “I am pleased that William has the opportunity to join us this summer and I welcome him to Washington.”
“I have a lot of respect for Senator Johnson and am grateful for this opportunity to work in his D.C. office. I hope to contribute as much as I can and learn from this experience,” said Torness.
The Washington, DC internship program matches interns' interests to South Dakota and federal issues while providing a first-hand opportunity to experience a wide-range of office duties. Interns may attend hearings, research issues for projects, and work with the office administrative staff.
