Washington, DC—U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) today welcomed Michael Anderson of Aberdeen to his Washington, DC internship program. A graduate of Central High School, Anderson is the son of Andy and Mary Anderson of Aberdeen. Anderson is a graduate of Northern Arizona University, and has just finished the first year of his master’s program at South Dakota State University in Communication Studies and Journalism.
“Through internships, students gain valuable insight into the political process in Washington,” Johnson said. “I’m pleased that Michael has the opportunity to join us this summer and I welcome him to Washington.”
“Eventually, I want to work in Washington, D.C. and interning with Senator Johnson is a great way to gain experience on Capitol Hill,” Anderson said. “He has been a wonderful representative for South Dakota and I am excited to be interning with his office.”
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.
College sophomores, juniors and seniors are encouraged to apply for Johnson's upcoming fall internship program. College credits and/or a stipend are available.
