U.S. Third District Congressman Frank Lucas welcomed Perry native Meghan Easter to his Washington, D.C., office as she begins her summer internship with the congressman.

Easter will be working in Lucas’ Washington office through Aug. 11. She will participate in day-to-day operations in the congressional office, such as assisting the staff with legislation, research, and constituent correspondence.

“Meghan is working with us at an interesting time,” Lucas said. “From immigration reform, to energy policy, to the review and renewal of the Farm Bill, there will be a variety of issues affecting Oklahoma that she will be exposed to. Meghan’s internship will give her a better understanding of the legislative process, and her work will be a great help to my office.”

In addition to assisting Congressman Lucas, Easter will also attend congressional hearings, lead constituents in tours of the U.S. Capitol, participate in symposium events for interns and tour points of interest in Washington.

Easter is studying chemical engineering at the University of Kansas and will begin her junior year there this fall. She is a member of the College Republicans and Chi Omega sorority. She was a valedictorian graduate of Perry High School in 2004.

Her parents are Blaine and Gwen Easter of Perry.

Congressman Lucas is currently accepting applications for fall internships. Students who would like to apply can contact his Washington office at (202) 225-5565, or visit his web site at www.house.gov/lucas and click on the “Services” link.
