Washington, DC - Two Idaho students are assisting staff and constituents in Idaho Senator Mike Crapo's Boise office during the spring semester. They are part of the internship program in Crapo's office available to Idaho students.

Andrew "A.J." Church is continuing his internship experience while pursuing a degree in Political Science at Boise State. Church, who has completed multiple internships in Twin Falls and Washington, DC for both Senator Crapo and Congressman Simpson, is a native of the Magic Valley and graduated from Twin Falls High School.

Jillian Foster is a recent graduate of California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics. She also works part-time for the Women and Children's Alliance in Boise as a Residential Specialist seeking to stop domestic violence in Idaho homes. Foster graduated from Eagle High School.

"There may be no better way to learn directly about our federal government than by participating in our student intern program," Crapo said. "Idahoans also benefit by the increased legislative research and constituent service brought to our offices by our student interns."
