BHSU students selected as legislative interns

Five Black Hills State University students have been selected to participate in government internships during the upcoming 2000 Legislative session in Pierre.

Four of the interns will serve in the state Legislature; one in the governor's office.

Sara Ashton, a mathematics major from Rapid City, will be an intern for the Republicans in the Senate. Tobie Eveland, a senior tourism major from Winner, will also intern with the Republicans in the Senate. Ami Garrigan, a sophomore political science major from Onida, will be an intern for the Senate Democrats. Nicole Pierson, a sophomore social science major from Aberdeen, will be an intern with the Republicans in the House. Robert Stahl, a sophomore, will intern in Governor Janklow's office. He is a business administration major from Mitchell.

Lara Thomason, a freshman elementary education major from Agar, was named an alternate. Should one of those selected to serve as legislative interns decline the internship, Lara will be given the opportunity to participate.

Dr. Tom Hills, professor of political science, has served as coordinator of the university's Legislative internship program for 23 years. During that time, he has placed 101 BH students as interns in the Legislature. Black Hills State has also placed nine interns with the State Federation of Labor, and two in the governor's office.
