Demeranville completes internship with Shelby

WASHINGTON, DC -- In May, U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) welcomed Meg Demeranville as an intern in his Washington, D. C. office and she recently completed her stint..

She is the daughter of Dr. Charles and Kathy Demeranville of Mobile.

While in Washington, Demeranville corresponded with constituents and assisted with government research, conducted tours of the U.S. Capitol building, and received Congressional Research Service certification. She also attended several hearings at the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Development.

“Working as an intern for Senator Shelby has been an invaluable experience," Demeranville said. "I've been able to witness policy development in action, learn about the Capitol and the legislative process, and meet a wonderful group of people. I will truly treasure my time interning on the Hill.”

Demeranville is currently pursuing a juris doctorate degree from Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama. 

"The Congressional Internship Program is an important complement to these students' academic studies" said Shelby. "Their experiences help bring to life what they have studied in the classroom. The internship fosters a fuller, richer understanding of our government's legislative process, while providing a first-hand view of public service."

"Many times, interning in our nation's capital inspires and motivates young people to one day seek elected office or work as public servants," Shelby added. "I know the bright, energetic students who assisted me during June will go on to achieve great things, whether in Washington, D. C. or elsewhere."

Shelby’s Congressional Internship Program is open to college students who exhibit an interest in government and public service.
