Anne Marie Wolff_April, 2018
COLLEGE STATION – Anne Marie Wolff, a 2014 graduate of Natchitoches Central High School and a December 2017 agricultural economics graduate from Texas A&M University with Magna Cum Laude honors, began an internship in Washington, D.C. in January, 2018. Anne Marie will spend the spring as an integral part of the Office of Congressman Jeb Hensarling.

Anne Marie is one of 13 students selected for a policy internship through the Agricultural and Natural Resources Policy (ANRP) Internship Program at Texas A&M University. Anne Marie’s duties include monitoring legislation, attending committee hearings and briefings, and preparing reports for senior staff members. Anne Marie is the daughter of Mike and Becky Wolff of Natchitoches. Following the completion of this internship in May, Anne Marie will begin work in June with Ardent Mills in their quality department and leadership development program at a flour mill in Ayer, Massachusetts.

“The ANRP Internship Program is one of few in the nation specifically geared toward transforming today’s agricultural students into tomorrow’s leaders,” said Stephanie McMillen, director of the ANRP Internship Program. “Through this opportunity, students use what they have learned in the classroom in a professional work setting. Not only will this D.C. experience be attractive to future employers, but our students are also providing valuable assistance to the offices in which they intern.”

The program is in its 28th year of sending students to Washington, D.C. to work in congressional offices and other agricultural organizations. Since its inception, more than 900 Aggies have worked in Washington, D.C. through the program. Each student receives course credit for their internship as well as a scholarship in the form of housing, which is partly supported by private donors and commodity organizations.
