"It is always a pleasure to support our brightest students, like Jorden, as they explore public service and government operations in our nation's historic halls of Congress," said Congressman Rogers.

She is a delightful addition to our DC office and displays a great deal of leadership potential."

Jones is a sophomore at the University of Kentucky, where she is majoring in Political Science and Sociology. She is currently studying Arabic and aspires to have a career in diplomacy. 

"I would like to thank Congressman Rogers, his wonderful staff, and the University of Kentucky for this amazing opportunity," said Jones. "I am deeply grateful to experience the elaborate shaping of our nation at such an incredible perspective, and to be immersed in a community of significant history and leaders."
