"I’m so thankful for the opportunity that Congressman Rogers has given me, and I hope to take what I have learned back to my district and better my community," says Baker. "I’ve learned so much during my internship, and it has really been an honor to work for such a powerful Member of Congress. His dedication to his district, his country, and his constituents are three things that I will always carry with me."
