Crapo Recognizes Summer Interns

Students Wrap-Up Summer work in Boise, Twin Falls and Washington

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Idaho Senator Mike Crapo recognized the service of his summer interns in his Boise, Twin Falls and Washington, D.C., offices.  The interns have had the opportunity to work on legislative issues before the federal government, while also assisting with constituent services and the Senator's communications team.

"As an intern in the U.S. Senate, each individual has gained hands-on experience working in the legislative branch, with the unique opportunity to see how the needs and views of Idahoans are considered before Congress," said Crapo. "They have represented Idaho well, and I wish them continued success."

Two students are interning in the Boise office:
