Weeklong trip to Washington, D.C., influences Y.E.S. attendee's future education
Event Marketing and Communications Manager Nicole McMahon recently caught up with 2010 Youth Education Summit alumnus Joe Bliss, who is now interning with the NRA Institute for Legislative Action:
Since attending the NRA Youth Education Summit (Y.E.S.) in 2010 Joe Bliss has had one thing on his mind: politics. Now a junior at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion, S.D., Joe is double majoring in political science and criminal justice. After he obtains his degrees he plans to go to graduate school and break into state politics.
However, Joe isn't waiting until grad school to take action, he is setting the stage now to be a successful lawmaker as an intern with the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA). Why did Joe come to Washington, DC to work for the NRA if he wants to be a South Dakotan politician?
"I am the state director for South Dakota's Students for Concealed Carry," said Joe. "I am advocating for a campus concealed carry bill and want to have our district representative sponsor the bill in 2015."
