National Federation of Republican Women
Awards Summer Internship to South Carolina Student
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A Hartsville, S.C., 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.
Rebecca Edwards 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, Rebecca is well-prepared for working in the nation's capital this summer. She has interned for U.S. Sen. Tim Scott and Gov. Nikki Haley and is a member of Haley's Grassroots Steering Committee for her reelection campaign. Rebecca is a senior studying political science at Converse College, where she served as president of the College Republicans chapter from 2012-13 and is a member of the Model Programs which teaches college students the inner workings of international politics.
"We are confident Rebecca 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.
