U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) has added Beaufort resident Elijah Stacks to his office in Washington, D.C. as a summer intern.
Stacks is a rising senior at Liberty University majoring in Government, International Relations.
“I’m excited to welcome Elijah to the office. He has been a great asset to the team, and I appreciate his service to the people of South Carolina,” Scott said in a release. “He has shown professionalism and maturity in handling all of his work assignments. We enjoy having him on the team, and I hope that his experience on Capitol Hill will be useful as he decides his next adventure to embark on.”
Congressional internships have two focuses: education and service.
Stacks will spend the majority of his time serving the people of South Carolina — he is one of the first points of contact in the office, greeting and guiding visitors, taking constituent phone calls, providing information and sharing constituent feedback with the senator. He guides tours of the Capitol for visitors from the state and is the presence from home whose goal it is to make South Carolinians feel welcome at the Senate.
The other focus of Senator Scott’s internship program is education. Interns have the opportunity to work on specialized projects with staff in their areas of interest.
With a focus in international relations, Elijah is interested in foreign affairs and armed services. He has worked closely with members of our policy team and has had the opportunity to work on research projects and attended briefings and hearings held at the Senate.
“My internship with Senator Scott has been a fantastic opportunity to experience the legislative process first-hand,” Stacks said in a release. “From attending hearings to assisting with research to listening to the opinions of South Carolina constituents, it has been the experience of a lifetime to work on Capitol Hill and to serve the Senator and people of South Carolina.”
