Governor McCrory Addresses State Government Interns

Press Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     Governor Pat McCrory congratulated more than 80 state government interns today at a reception at the governor's mansion. The interns took part in a summer program that provided them with training in a wide range of state government workplaces.

    "I'm proud of these students for showing interest in public service, and I'm proud that our internship program was the first of its kind in the country," Governor McCrory said. "We are investing in our young people here in North Carolina, because we know that they are our next generation of leaders."

    Department of Administration Secretary Bill Daughtridge, along with Youth Advocacy and Involvement Office Executive Director Stephanie Nantz, also addressed the crowd of interns and officials. Members of the Internship Council, Council of State members and others were among the state officials at the reception.

    This year more than 500 students applied for the internship program, representing 78 of the state's 100 counties and numerous public and private colleges and universities, law schools and community colleges. Of these applicants, 83 interns were selected, representing 42 counties and 30 schools.

    The internship program, which is part of the Department of Administration's Youth Advocacy and Involvement Office, began in May and included college, graduate and law students in more than 48 different fields of study ranging from accounting to zoology.

    Established in 1969, the program offers paid internships to North Carolina residents attending two or four-year colleges, universities, community colleges, graduate school or law school.
