There are paper-pushing internships. Amazing career-boosting internships. And then there are White House internships.
Valerie Delp of Pepperdine University School of Law, and a Churchville resident, is going to find out the difference this summer.
The White House announced her participation in its 2012 internship program this week.
Interns work in one of several White House departments, from the Office of Chief of Staff to the Office of the White House Counsel.
Additional information about the White House Internship Program is available here:www.whitehouse.gov/internships. The application for the Spring 2013 program is available on the website.
