Tabor student interns with congressman

Tabor College senior Andrew Wiens is spending the summer learning about government first-hand.

“I have not only been exposed to national politics and the legislative process,” said Wiens, who is working as an intern in Rep. Jerry Moran’s Washington office, “but I have also witnessed firsthand the complex issues facing our country’s leaders today.”

Wiens, son of Emery and Donna Wiens of Topeka, is a graduate of Cornerstone Family School.

After his internship, he plans to complete his studies at Tabor, where he expects to earn degrees in philosophy, history, religious studies, and business management, then pursue a post-graduate degree or enter the workforce.

“I truly appreciate this special opportunity and look forward to applying what I have learned in the future,” he said.

Interns perform a range of legislative and administrative duties in congressional offices.

“Congressional internships offer Kansas students a great opportunity to learn about Congress and the legislative process,” Moran said. “Andrew is doing important work for Kansans and gaining valuable experience that will help him in the future.”
