WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today announced that four students will intern with his Washington, D.C., Bismarck and Fargo offices this fall. The interns will work with the senator and his staff on legislative, communication and administrative projects.

“We are happy to welcome this talented group of young North Dakotans as interns. They have already impressed us with their strong work ethic and passion for North Dakota,” said Hoeven. “During their internship experience, these students will have the ability to expand their knowledge of the congressional process and the issues impacting North Dakota while also developing the skills that will help them achieve their future career aspirations. Interning is a learning experience, and our office is committed to helping these students learn and grow while they are with us.”

Britt Aasmundstad and Rachel Buening are currently working in Hoeven’s Washington, D.C. office.

Luke Turner, a Bismarck-native, is interning in Hoeven’s Bismarck office. He attended Bismarck State College, Minot State University and the University of North Dakota, where he earned a juris doctorate and master of public administration with an emphasis in health administration. He enjoys studying government and experiencing the political process in action.
