National Federation of Republican Women
Awards Summer Internship to New Jersey Student
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A Bloomingdale, N.J., resident has been selected to participate in a summer internship program with the National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW), one of largest women's political organizations in the nation.
Hayley Conklin, a native of Bloomingdale, has been awarded the Dorothy Andrews Kabis Memorial Internship. Named for the former president of the NFRW who was later appointed U.S. treasurer by President Richard Nixon, the program gives young women the opportunity to spend part of the summer at NFRW headquarters in Alexandria, Va.
With a background in politics and campaigns, Hayley is well-prepared for working in the nation's capital this summer. She has interned with the New Jersey Republican State Committee, Romney for President, and Gov. Chris Christie's reelection campaign, gaining experience in fundraising events and outreach. She also served as legislative aide for New Jersey Assemblyman Scott Rumana. Hayley is entering her senior year at Stonehill College in Massachusetts, where she is studying political science and economics.
"We are confident Hayley will bring her dynamic and vibrant talents to our organization," NFRW President Kathy Brugger said. "This is a wonderful opportunity for her to experience all Washington, D.C., has to offer, to meet other interns, and to gain invaluable insight into the election process and grassroots political activism."
Founded in 1938, the NFRW has thousands of
active members in local clubs across the nation and in several
U.S. territories, making it one of the largest women’s political
organizations in the country. The grassroots organization works
to promote the principles and objectives of the Republican
Party, elect Republican candidates, inform the public through
political education and activity, and increase the effectiveness
of women in the cause of good government.
