"Principles of Cooperation"
between HU and the State Department. Funding is being provided
largely under the appropriation resulting from the initiative
by Congressman Charles Rangel and also by a grant from the
Una Chapman Cox Foundation.
The HU students were selected from hundreds of applications
to the State Department from around the country, according
to Ms. Perry who coordinated efforts at HU.
"Our students," she said, "will work hand-in-hand
with US Foreign Service Officers on political and economic
affairs relevant to foreign policy matters."
Headed for European countries are Allison Mills, Italy; Percy
Dyer, Russia; and Stephane Alrivy, Turkey. Fonta Gilliam will
intern at the US Embassy in Canada. Assigned to Guyana is
Shomari Wade; and Madelina Young will go to the Philippines.
The largest single group of interns will serve in Africa,
including Thomas Dominique, Ghana; Solange Garvey, Botswana;
Kevin Harper, The Gambia; and Khalieliah Banks, Kenya.
Serving in the State Department, Washington, will be LaNisa
Kitchener, International Organizations; Dalisa Hutchinson,
Economic and Business Affairs; Blaine McShall, Diplomatic
Security; Ava Carter, Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor;
Brakkton Booker, International Visitor Program; David Whitted,
Western Hemisphere Affairs; and Solange Garvey, International
Organizations. Ms. Garvey will begin her domestic internship
following a summer stint in Botswana.
Centrina Jackson and Nona Flowers will, respectively, work
