Legislator Leslie Kennedy was happy to host several interns throughout the summer of 2023. Of those that completed their internships, two interns partook in the Suffolk County Legislature’s Page Program, which provides an interactive, hands-on learning experience for college-aged students. These interns were Brett Patrick and Samantha McGay. Brett Patrick is going into his freshman year of college at Binghamton University. Samantha McGay is entering her senior year at Hauppauge High School. She began her internship prior to the start of summer 2023 and is looking to continue into the school year.
Aaryan Sharma, who also completed his internship, is going into his freshman year of college at American University in Washington, D.C., where he plans on studying international business as well as being an active participant in student life.
All summer interns leave with an enhanced knowledge of county government and have contributed to an office environment.
