Murkowski Welcomes Interns to the Alaska Report

Hosts Q&A with First Group of Summer Interns

U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) recently hosted a Q&A with her first summer session of recent high school graduate interns for her annual recording of the “Alaska Report.” Senator Murkowski provided her 10 interns the chance to close out their time in D.C. with a round of questions on her personal and professional experiences, including questions on her personal definition of success, opportunities to improve Alaska’s justice system, her motivation to address the epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women, among many others.

“Every summer, I have two sessions of interns that join my office in Washington D.C. This year’s first summer session is an exceptional group of ten young people from around the state of Alaska that have each bring a different perspective. Throughout their internship, each individual attended different proceedings in the Senate, shadowed me throughout the day, helped my staff on issues that are important to Alaskans, and learned about the inner workings of our Nation’s Capital,” said Senator Murkowski. “I appreciate this group of dedicated young professionals for all the hard work and excitement they brought to my office over the last month, and I wish them well as they take the next step in their lives, wherever that may be.”
