Texarkana residents who recently called Senator John Boozman’s Washington, D.C. office may have heard a familiar voice at the other end of the line.
Robert Dalby, a 2012 graduate of Arkansas Senior High School, completed Boozman’s five-week long Congressional Summer Internship Program in the nation’s capital.
While in Washington, Dalby attended committee hearings and legislative briefings, worked with congressional staff on various state and federal projects, provided constituent services to visiting Arkansans, attended lectures from a variety of speakers, gave tours of the U.S Capitol and shadowed Boozman during meetings, hearings and receptions.
“This internship and my time in DC has been an incredible experience that I will not soon forget. It has been a privilege to get an up-close look at how Congress operates and I have learned a number of valuable lessons from this that I couldn’t have learned anywhere else. I want to thank Senator Boozman and all of his staff for giving me this opportunity and for making my time here so memorable and productive,” Dalby said.
“Robert has been a tremendous help to the people of Arkansas during his time in Washington. We appreciate his commitment and dedication to serving Arkansans and being an ambassador for our office,” Boozman said.
Robert is a senior at the University of Arkansas majoring in Political Science, International Relations, and European Studies. He is the son of John and Carol Dalby of Texarkana.
