County Clerk Looking For Summer Interns


The Washington County Clerk’s Office is now accepting applications for their 2017 summer internship program.

The program is open to any students, age 18-24, graduating from one of the surrounding high schools and who will be attending an accredited college this fall.

“This program is a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience for young leaders in our community,” said Clerk Sarah Milligan. “This internship will be a great way to build a strong resume and develop an understanding of local government, giving interns will have a first-hand look at the inner workings of the county clerk’s office.”

Along with assisting clerk deputies with daily task and responsibilities, interns accepted into the program will help scan and digitally file decades of public records in order to preserve them for the future generations.

Experience gained from this program will give local students an opportunity to learn more about our justice system and their county clerk’s office.

The internship is unpaid and students must dedicate a minimum of 15 hours a week to participate in the program. The program will begin in late May and will end in mid-August.

“We need dedicated individuals who are willing to get involved and make a difference in their community,” said First Deputy Lindsey Jackson. “Participating in this program will leave a lasting impact in our county and in our clerk’s office.”

Interested individuals are asked to send a completed application, resume and cover letter to the Washington County Clerk’s Office by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, May 19th..
