WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today thanked Brian Ard of El Dorado, Kan., and Victoria Lee and Paige Hungate, both of Wichita, Kan., for serving as U.S. Senate Interns in his Washington, D.C., office this spring.

“Brian, Victoria and Paige have been doing important work for Kansans and gaining valuable experience that will help them in the future.” Sen. Moran said. “I was an intern myself – it’s what got me interested in public service. Interns continue to prove to me that there are a lot of great, young people across our state who have an interest in making a difference in the lives of others. Young people like Brian, Victoria and Paige give me confidence that good things are going to happen in this country, especially in Kansas, because our kids are growing up to become impressive and hardworking young adults.”

Ard is a 2010 Circle High School Graduate, and is currently a senior at Wichita State University. He is working toward a bachelor’s degree in finance, and after graduation plans to work in the private sector.

Lee is a 2011 Andover High School Graduate. She also graduated from Kansas State University in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in Family Studies and Human Services. Lee will now continue working for Kansans as a behavior specialist at Family First Center for Autism and Child Development in the Kansas City area.

Hungate graduated from Kapaun Mount Carmel Catholic High School in 2014. She is currently a freshman at Wichita State University working toward a bachelor’s in Computer Science Engineering and Political Science. After graduation, she hopes to attend law school and study patent law.

During their time working in the United States Senate, Ard, Lee and Hungate assisted Sen. Moran with legislative and administrative duties on behalf of the state of Kansas.
