Washington, DC—U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) today welcomed Shad Christman of Lemmon to his Washington, DC internship program. A graduate of Lemmon High School, Christman is the son of Chuck and Kerry Christman of Lemmon. Christman is a recent graduate of South Dakota State University where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Speech Communication.
“Through internships, students gain valuable insight into the political and legislative process in Washington,” Johnson said. “I am glad Shad has been able to join us this summer and I am sure he will do well here.”
“I hope that this internship will allow me to meet many new people, gain knowledge on important issues, and give me the experience that I will need to serve South Dakota in the future,” said Christman.
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.
