Alva senior Amanda Callender, Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Civic Education Fellow for 2013, spent the second week in May working with Sen. Bryce Marlatt in the Oklahoma State Legislature during a legislative internship program.
The political science student was selected for the honor by the social sciences department.
Dr. Kay Decker, social sciences department chair, said Sen. Marlatt works with her department to support the Civic Education Fellowship Program each year and sponsors the Civic Education Fellows in their legislative internship program.
“Each year, the Civic Education Fellow is selected to participate in the Legislative Internship Program based on their desire to pursue a career in public service,” Decker said. “Amanda will be applying to law school in the spring of 2014.”
