For a group of KSU students, there is no better place to learn than through internships at the Georgia General Assembly. In this year's legislative session, Kennesaw State has 13 students, which is one of the largest groups selected from the University for this highly competitive program, working either as legislative interns or temporary aides at the Georgia State Capitol.
KSU students participating in the Georgia Legislative Internship Program include Daniel Coley, Deb Couey, Joseph King, Lesley Solis, Rebecca Stachnik, Nyaijah Waller, and Matthew Weese. Students in temporary aide positions are Madeleine Moghimi, Kristina Contreras, Cami Vlasin, Khizr Masalawala, and Brandon Orozco Mazarieg. And working in the Governor's Office is Austin Headrick.
We are proud of these students as they showcase their academic prowess and notable work ethic expected of those from Kennesaw State. But more than that, these students show how a Kennesaw State degree can provide opportunities for success beyond the classroom. For example, KSU alumnus Diego Santana, who participated in the program last year, was able to step into a full-time role as a legislative assistant in the Senate this year.
We are committed to supporting our students through engaged learning experiences exemplified through these 13 KSU students interning at the seat of government for our great state.
