Schatz Picks Outreach 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 Kaiser High senior Sharissa Miyasato, the only public school intern from the Honolulu District, and Niu Valley resident Aina Katsikas of Sacred Hearts Academy. The girls join seven other public school seniors and six from private schools throughout the state. They were selected based on community involvement, diversity of interests and demonstrated leadership qualities. (Katsikas has voiced a desire to run for president in 2048.)

“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.
