Washington, DC—U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) today welcomed Sarah Butrum of Sisseton, South Dakota, to his Washington, DC office. A graduate of Sisseton High School, Butrum is the daughter of Shannon LaBatte and Bryan Crawford of Sisseton and the granddaughter of Amy and Franklin Crawford of Sisseton. Butrum is a graduate of Minnesota State University at Moorhead, where she majored in Psychology and minored in Political Science.
“Through internships, students gain valuable insight into the political process in Washington,” Johnson said. “I’m glad that Sarah has the opportunity to join us this summer and I know she will make the most of her experience.”
“I am participating in the Udall Foundation’s Congressional Internship Program and working in Senator Johnson’s office offers me a great opportunity to learn about issues important to South Dakota,” Butrum said. “I am excited to be placed in Senator Johnson’s office because of the work he does on the Indian Affairs Committee.”
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.
