Opportunity offers current Wabash College student chance to
experience state government

(Indianapolis) – Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita is pleased to announce that Peter Hewitt of Greenwood is currently completing the prestigious 2009 Indiana Secretary of State Internship Program. The summer-long program selects college and university students from around the state and allows them the opportunity to experience state government first-hand through the Secretary of State’s office.

“Peter exemplifies the kind of top-notch students we have here in Indiana,” Secretary Rokita said. “I feel that he is an individual who will help guide our state and country with his desperately-needed leadership in the coming years, and I’m thrilled to have him here, as he is a valuable addition to our office.”

Hewitt will be a senior at Wabash College this fall, where he is pursuing a degree in political science with a minor in Spanish. He is captain of the swim team and also a member of the pre-law society.

A 2006 graduate of Center Grove High School, Hewitt is the son of Tim and Karen Hewitt. He will graduate from Wabash in 2010 and plans to attend law school. Prior to law school, Hewitt says he might like to take time to participate in the Teach for America program or take part in the Fulbright Scholarship program.
