Columbus North grads serving as statehouse interns

Two Columbus North High School graduates are serving as interns at the Indiana Statehouse during this legislative session.

State Sen. Greg Walker said Annabel Freeman and Miguel Salas-Prieto are serving as interns for the Indiana Senate Majority Caucus.

Freeman is the daughter of Anne and Andrew Freeman. She is a sophomore at Purdue University studying natural resources and environmental science.

Freeman tracks and analyzes bill data, provides constituent services, staffs Senate committee hearings and meetings and conducts legislative policy research.

Salas-Prieto is the son of Miguel Salas and Ramona Prieto. After high school he graduated from IUPUI with a degree in Cybersecurity.

Salas-Prieto is an IT intern, helping senators and staff troubleshoot technology issues and running equipment during committee meetings so hearings can be livestreamed.

Senate Majority interns work through the duration of the legislative session, which is scheduled to end by March 14.
