As summer is winding to a close, we’re posting the final installment of our Meet the Intern series. Elizabeth Matthews, a Northern Kentucky native, worked with GLI’s Public Affairs and Communication department. The Inner Chamber Blog can personally attest to the amazing research and thoughtful projects she completed this summer, on topics ranging from education and the local economy to taxes and Kentucky state revenue. Read on to learn more:
Hi! My name is Elizabeth Matthews, and I will be a senior at Duke University this fall. I’m studying public policy and am thrilled to be an intern in GLI’s Public Affairs and Communications Department. I’m interested in a broad range of policy areas, so over the past few weeks, I’ve been able to research several different issues that affect Louisville and its people. I’m currently compiling research on charter schools, as the federal Race to the Top competition has Kentucky debating whether or not to pass legislation that allows for charter schools.
During my internship, I gained a greater understanding of how an organization like GLI advocates on behalf of Louisville’s business community and its many interests, as well as how GLI strategically positions itself to play a critical part in the growth of this region. As a Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati native—and someone who is scouting cities for post-graduation— I’m also enjoyed getting to know a different part of Kentucky better and experiencing all that Louisville has to offer!
