Drury University student Katie Daily is at the Democratic National Convention this week in Denver to learn more about the political process. KSMU's Missy Shelton spoke with her by phone this morning and files this report.
Katie Daily actually arrived in Denver last week to take part in the Washington Center's Campaign 2008 academic seminars. She'll receive three hours of college credit through the program. And that's not all...through the program, she's able to work this week at the Democratic National Convention with the Missouri delegation. She says it's an exciting opportunity.
Katie Daily is a junior at Drury University majoring in political science. She hopes to work as a political advisor to a candidate some day. She's getting some good experience this week to help her move closer to her career goal. At the convention in Denver, she's in charge of keeping delegates informed about what's happening each day.
Daily also helps staff with the Missouri Democratic Party work with the news media. By working with the reporters who are at the convention, Daily says she's already learned about the importance of the media to the democratic process.
Katie Daily received the opportunity to work at the convention and attend the Washington Center seminar because she was nominated by Drury's president and a board of faculty.
