Political Science and economics double major Hayley Conklin ’15 has been selected to participate in a summer internship program with the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), one of largest women's political organizations in the nation.
Hayley, a native of Bloomingdale, N.J., has been awarded the Dorothy Andrews Kabis Memorial Internship. Named for the former president of the NFRW who was later appointed U.S. treasurer by President Richard Nixon, the program gives young women the opportunity to spend part of the summer at NFRW headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
With a background in politics and campaigns, Hayley is well-prepared for working in the nation's capital this summer. She has interned with the N.J. Republican State Committee, Romney for President, and Gov. Chris Christie's reelection campaign, gaining experience in fundraising events and outreach. She also served as legislative aide for New Jersey Assemblyman Scott Rumana.
"We are confident Hayley will bring her dynamic and vibrant talents to our organization," NFRW President Kathy Brugger said. "This is a wonderful opportunity for her to experience all Washington, D.C., has to offer, to meet other interns, and to gain invaluable insight into the election process and grassroots political activism."
