CLC Student Interns with Congressman

Brainerd Native Interns with Congressman

It was the dream summer job for pretty much any political junky.

So when Myles Hotzler was picked to be an intern at the Washington D.C. office of Congressman Rick Nolan, D-Minn., he jumped at it.

It all started last year when 21-year-old Hotzler was attending Central Lakes College in Brainerd, his hometown. He saw fliers around campus asking for students to apply to be an intern, so Hotzler submitted an application and resume. "There's only one chance in life for something like this, and I'm a supporter of him," Hotzler said.

Hotzler stayed hopeful as he waited to hear back from the congressman's office. Finally in March, he found out he was one of a handful selected.
