ATHENS — Elizabeth Davis of Hinesville has been selected for the 2007 Congressional Agricultural Fellowship Program by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
During the summer of 2007, seven CAES students, including Davis, will be interning for Georgia’s lawmakers. Davis has been assigned to the office of Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.).
“Our students have been well received by these congressional offices, and they become an integral part of the policy discussions in these offices,” said Josef Broder, who is the CAES associate dean for academic affairs.
“I hope to become a better leader and serve my congressman to the best of my ability by putting forth 110 percent every day,” Davis said.
D.C. fellows attend agriculture committee hearings, prepare briefs, conduct agricultural research and meet with constituents. In addition to compensation from the congressional offices, the students receive a scholarship made possible through the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
A junior at UGA, Davis is majoring in agricultural communications. She was the SGA freshman class vice president, has served on the SGA executive board and as an orientation leader and is involved in Alpha Gamma Delta sorority, the Agriculture Engineering Technology Club and the Public Relations Student Society of America.
“I am excited to be able to embrace the challenges and expectations that have been set before me,” Davis said.
She is the daughter of Debbie Rodriguez and Calvin Davis of Hinesville.
