Schatz Names Two Area Interns

U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz has announced his choice of 15 Hawaii teens for his 2015 Seniors Internship Program, based out of his Honolulu office.

The list includes Waialua High and Intermediate senior Kiana Paakaula-Reis and Kahuku High and Intermediate senior Hannah Miller — along with six other public school seniors and seven from private schools throughout the state. They were selected based on community involvement, diversity of interests and demonstrated leadership qualities. (Both girls also recently received Turtle Bay Foundation scholarships: Paakaula-Reis to Chaminade and Miller to BYU-Hawaii.)

“Our Schatz Seniors are some of the most active and community-engaged high school students in our state,” Schatz said. “I look forward to working with this year’s class as they continue to develop useful civic leadership skills that they can apply in their schools and communities.”

While working with the senator’s outreach staff here, the new interns will attend and assist at special events co-hosted by Schatz and must maintain a 2.0 grade-point average.
