Christy Thomas '00: Brush with Greatness

This from Christy Thomas '00:

"I just discovered that the Congressman I interned with at UPS is now the Majority Whip. I spent the summer of 1998 in DC through an internship program and while the program wasn’t the best, the office I worked in was amazing. Congressman Clyburn focused most of his staff in the district, so the DC office had four full time staff members and four college interns. I highly recommend DC internships and choosing to work for someone outside your home state. I learned a lot about tobacco, transportation and race issues that summer."

Christy is currently Special Gift Officer at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Thanks for the note and the good word on the value of internships.
