WASHINGTON - Katelyn J. Flynn, daughter of Sandy and Joel Flynn of Davenport, has just finished spending the spring semester in Washington, D.C. working as a legislative intern for Chuck Grassley. Flynn is a graduate of Bettendorf High School. She is a junior studying English at Olivet Nazarene University.
"Interning in my office in Washington, D.C. is a valuable experience for any student who wants to get a first-hand look at how the Senate works," Grassley said. "Interns play an important role and are given the chance to take full advantage of their surroundings. An internship is a unique opportunity for students to gain professional experience that will help them in their future endeavors."
"My internship this semester has been a memorable learning experience of limitless value for me. I have had wonderful opportunities to learn from Grassley. Working in this office has been very inspiring. I feel that my hard work has been a reward in itself, and has not only taught me a lot about politics and work ethic, but I have learned the most about myself. I have been challenged in ways that have taught me what my strengths and weaknesses are. The people I met and worked with, the lessons I learned, and the memories I made are all unforgettable," Flynn said.
