Working for Sen. Kerry

Thu, 2012-10-25 13:02 -- rmatheson

Lorrie Jenkins, '13, a Navy veteran, was recently hired as Veterans' Liaison for U.S. Sen. John Kerry, a position she secured thanks to Career Services' Shadow a Legislator Program, where students trail an official at the Massachusetts Statehouse for a day. Her new job recently brought her to President Obama's rally in New Hampshire, where she met the presidential candidate. Pretty good for someone who was never one for politics before the shadow program sparked her interest just last semester.
