Whitley County Native Interning for Congressman Hal Rogers in Washington, D.C.
Nicolas Wilson, a 2009 graduate from Whitley County High School, is serving as an intern in Congressman Hal Rogers' office for a duration of six weeks this summer. Wilson will be a senior at the University of Kentucky this fall and plans to enroll into law school in Fall 2014. Wilson is the son of Jim & Tammy Wilson and Donna Rowe.
“I have had quite the learning experience working in the office of the Chairman of the Appropriations Committee, and it makes me very proud to have one of the most powerful members of Congress serving our great district on Capitol Hill,” Wilson states. “Watching politics unfold is intriguing. Yet, above all else, I enjoy interacting with the constituents through phone calls, e-mails, and, certainly, in person when they travel from eastern Kentucky to tour the Capitol building.” He adds, “It is an honor to intern under Congressman Rogers, especially after all the service he has done for the Tri-County area.”
Rogers has served Kentucky’s 5th Congressional District since 1981. With a focus on economic development, job creation, fighting illegal drugs and preserving Appalachia’s natural treasures, he has a reputation for listening to his constituents and fighting for the region he represents.
