South Carolina Governor’s School for Science & Mathematics (GSSM) Junior Emilee Daniel, daughter of Tamara and Jonathan Johnson of Greenville County, has been selected to take part in the inaugural Youth in Government (YIG) Legislative Research Intern program.
YIG awarded this highly competitive year-long internship to Daniel based on her previous YIG experience, academic record, research and writing skills, extracurricular work, and recommendations from faculty.
"I have been interested in government and law from a very young age. I am excited to see what it is like in this field," Daniel said.
She will be working with Representative Neil Collins, a Republican Representative in the House serving District Five. Through the program, she will have a chance to perform research and write briefs on topics that legislators are debating or are looking to write and introduce into legislation. As team leader, Daniel will also be responsible for dividing the workload amongst her team and ensure timely completion of tasks.
“I worked with Emilee as the school's YIG advisor, and I also accompanied her at the November state YIG conference in Columbia. This is a well-deserved honor,” said Dr. Karl Rohr, a GSSM History Instructor
