PHC grad at White House

After only three years in operation, Patrick Henry College announced that a graduate of the school's inaugural class recently accepted a full-time position at the White House.

Rebekah McDonald, a 2002 graduate, accepted a position in the Bush Administration as the Executive Assistant to the Director of Strategic Initiatives in the White House. Her responsibilities include administrative duties, research, and writing. This job offers some of the best practical experience possible for someone interested in influencing politics and government.

"This is further proof that the college's vision of training future leaders for tomorrow is a clear reality," said Mike Farris, president of the college. "Our students are already making a difference."

Upon graduating from Patrick Henry last May, Rebekah applied for a White House internship. She was assigned a position in the Office of the Senior Advisor to the President, Karl Rove, which led to her new full-time job with the Bush Administration.

"I am excited that I have the opportunity to serve in the White House during such a significant and historic time," Rebekah said.
