WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman Tim Huelskamp (K-S01) would like to congratulate First District student Katherine Andrews of Manhattan, Kansas, for being one of the 48 students selected to participate in the Library of Congress Junior Fellows program.

Katherine, a student at the University of Kansas, is one of 900 applicants chosen to be a part of the program this year and will be interning in the Preservation Research and Testing Division. Today, the Junior Fellows Summer Interns, along with Library curators and specialists, presented rare items from the Library’s unique collection.

Fellows are given the opportunity to travel through time via the Library’s rich collections of information in five categories: Collections Preservation, Geography and Maps, Humanities, Arts and Culture, Information Technology, Library Sciences, and Chemistry and Science.

Representative Huelskamp issued the following statement:

“Students like Katherine Andrews make me proud to represent the Big First District. This speaks volumes to others about the quality and importance that we place on the education of our children. This 10-week program gives eager students the chance to explore the depths of historical archives and is an unparalleled chance to gain insights into culture through the world’s largest archives.  Katherine’s work is commendable and with continued hard work she will continue to be recognized in Kansas and all over the US for her dedication.”
