Mary Unger, of Martin, will intern this summer with the Tennessee Democratic Party in Nashville. She will spend May 24-Aug. 8 working in the areas of fundraising, event planning and communications. Unger, a senior, has a major in communications with a concentration in public relations and a minor in political science.
“I’m fortunate enough to have individuals in my life to help me pursue this opportunity,” said Unger. “This is an important time for politics in Tennessee, and working with the Tennessee Democratic Party will be incredibly beneficial in pursuing my future goals.
I can’t wait to see what all Nashville has to offer while working for such an influential organization.” She added that the internship also will be good experience for her because she will be living on her own in Nashville and will get to understand what it’s like to reside in a larger city. “With the support of my family and friends, I feel confident about traveling to Nashville and making strong connections for my future.”
Unger plans to work in public relations or attend graduate school after graduating in May 2011. “My goal is to work in public relations in a corporate or governmental setting,” she said. “This internship will be a good test to figure out if I would like to pursue political public relations or possibly further my collegiate career to the graduate level.”
