Student Finds Calling Through DC Internship
AUGUST 11, 2015 | By CHRISTINA STEUBE
University of Mississippi senior Anna Lee Whisenant, a Madison native, spent her summer in Washington, DC, as a policy intern for the US Small Business Administration (SBA).
Whisenant said her studies at UM have given her the knowledge to be an asset to the SBA as an intern.
“I’ve definitely been preparing for this with my courses in public policy,” she said. “And I’m doing a good job here because of my education at Ole Miss.”
The successful internship has helped Whisenant decide to pursue a career in law with the hope of working as general counsel for a federal agency such as the SBA.
