Noel is a junior attending Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri. She is a political science major and enjoys reading, swimming and studying politics. After graduation her goal is to pursue a law degree followed by working as either an attorney or an analyst for a government agency. Noel commented, “Interning at MPB is a wonderful opportunity to learn about campaigns and elections. I’m thankful for the opportunity and look forward to researching all the details of the candidates and the new districts.”
The MPB internship includes a small paid stipend and Noel will receive three hours of college credit. Currently there is only one internship available but the Bug is looking to add more intern position this summer and next fall. Jetton concluded, "I felt this would be a great way for a student to gain firsthand knowledge of how campaigns are won. This is a great opportunity for political science or journalism students to learn about the political process. I wish something like this would have been available when I was in school."
