This Monday, 16 Campbell County high school juniors and seniors started their internships with the Campbell County Government Leadership Intern Program.
This eight-week program aims to educate students on how the government operates. Program director Lonnie Vann wants to get interns familiar with the government, and its different levels, branches, elements and functions. The program gives the interns first hand experience.
“It’s an educational program,” Vann said. “It’s not just a job for them.”
