Schatz Se­lects Two West Oahu In­terns

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - Front Page -

U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz has an­nounced his choice of 15 Hawaii teens for his 2015 Se­niors In­tern­ship Pro­gram, based out of his Honolulu of­fice.

The list in­cludes West Oahu stu­dents Jor­dan Bell of Kapolei High and Adrien Mag­poc of Amer­i­can Re­nais­sance Academy, along with six other pub­lic school se­niors and seven from pri­vate schools through­out the state. They were se­lected based on com­mu­nity in­volve­ment, di­ver­sity of in­ter­ests and demon­strated lead­er­ship qual­i­ties.

“Our Schatz Se­niors are some of the most ac­tive and com­mu­nity-en­gaged high school stu­dents in our state,” Schatz said.

“I look for­ward to work­ing with this year’s class as they con­tinue to de­velop use­ful civic lead­er­ship skills that they can ap­ply in their schools and com­mu­ni­ties.”

While work­ing with the se­na­tor’s out­reach staff here, the new in­terns will at­tend and as­sist at spe­cial events co-hosted by Schatz and must main­tain a 2.0 grade-point av­er­age.
