Pryor Thanks Arkansas Summer Interns

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Mark Pryor today thanked twelve Arkansas students who are interning in his Washington, D.C. office.

“Our internship program is a great opportunity for Arkansas students to see first-hand what it’s like to work in the U.S. Senate,” Pryor said. “I hope this experience will give them a better understanding of civic duty and volunteerism and encourage them to continue serving our state and nation.”
