Peachtree City student interns in Washington office

Peachtree City resident Brian Jack this month began a four-month internship in the Washington office of U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland.

“I like to give college students a front-row seat on American democracy through these internships and it’s always best to have someone from the district such as Brian who understands Georgia and feels a personal connection to my constituents,” Westmoreland said. “Brian’s going to be with us for a good stretch and he’s already shown an unusually high interest in federal policy-making and the legislative process. He has a strong grasp of how things work here and he’ll use those skills to help our office serve the people of Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District.”

Jack, 19, is a sophomore at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif., where he is majoring in political science. The Woodward Academy graduate recently returned from a semester abroad studying the Mandarin language and Chinese politics in Hong Kong. He is the son of Mitch and Sophia Williams of Peachtree City.
