SECRETARY OF STATE ANNOUNCES SUMMER INTERN

Topeka, KS - Kansas Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh announces Topeka resident Joanna Carpenter's participation in the office's 2003 Summer Intern Program. She is the daughter of Jane and David Carpenter. Joanna is majoring in Business Administration with a focus in Marketing and minoring in Pre Law at Westminster College in Fulton, MO.

Each summer the Secretary of State appoints students to work in the office by assisting in various projects and duties. These students gain valuable knowledge and experience from their time working with the agency.

"The students are a great asset and their help in making our agency the least complicated and most accessible in state government is greatly appreciated," Thornburgh said.
