Meet the Commission’s Summer Interns

The PDF for the issue in which this article appears can be found here.

Summer has come, and the Commission is celebrating the arrival of two new interns.

Kentucky native Gabriel Estridge is a student at George Washington University’s School of Law. Gabriel’s wide-ranging experience includes mentoring high-risk and developmentally disabled students for AmeriCorps, livestock farming, and serving as a medical records coordinator. Though he has only been working with us for a short time, he is making his mark (see his article on page 87 of this publication). When he is not engaged in original research for the Commission, he likes to read up on the Civil War and to run.

Kelly Crowe hails from York County, Pennsylvania. She’s a student at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia. Kelly graduated cum laude with a BA in English from Millersville University in Millersville, Pennsylvania in 2010. Her work experience includes writing analyses of case law as a student intern at the Institute for International Banking Law and Practice, Montgomery Village, Maryland, and coordinating meetings and seminars for an estate planning law firm.

Like Gabriel, Kelly is a former AmeriCorps volunteer who worked on a wide range of projects that included:

• Training AmeriCorps volunteers in the basics of media outreach

• Rebuilding homes in disaster areas

• Weatherizing homes for low-income clients

• Organizing meetings and events

• Developing training materials and curricula

• Researching grant opportunities.

Kelly received a Congressional Achievement award for completing 4000 hours of community service in a 2-year period.
