Mansfield High Graduate Chosen to Work in Washington D.C.
Grace Anderson, a 2014 graduate of Mansfield High School and a university studies-leadership major, urban planning and environmental geoscience minor at Texas A&M University recently began a fall 2018 internship in Washington, D.C. Grace will spend the fall as an integral part of the Office of Congressman Kevin Brady.
Grace is one of 13 students selected for a policy internship through the Agricultural and Natural Resources Policy (ANRP) Internship Program at Texas A&M University. Grace's duties include monitoring legislation, attending committee hearings and briefings, and preparing reports for senior staff members. Grace is the daughter of Ms. Lisa Anderson Scott.
"The ANRP Internship Program is one of few in the nation specifically geared toward transforming today's agricultural students into tomorrow's leaders," said Stephanie Webb, director of the ANRP Internship Program. "Through this opportunity, students use what they have learned in the classroom in a professional work setting. Not only will this D.C. experience be attractive to future employers, but our students are also providing valuable assistance to the offices in which they intern."
Congratulations Grace! Mansfield High is proud of you!
