Now THIS is an internship
Jedediah Lemon, a junior political science major, is working in the office of state House Majority Leader David Reed this spring as part of a 15-week internship sponsored by Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education through Bloomsburg University.
Lemon, who is also pursuing a minor in psychology, plans on attending law school after graduation. He is one of 16 students participating in The Harrisburg Internship Semester (THIS) program, which provides students the opportunity to work in all areas of state government while earning a full semester’s worth of credits.
“I saw the internship as the perfect opportunity to learn state government from the inside by being able to intern in some of the highest ranked offices within the Commonwealth,” says Lemon, adding he hopes one day to return working at this office, not as an intern but as a pivotal member of Pennsylvania politics or work aside his father as a lawyer.
