Graduate Student Receives McManus Fellowship
HUNTINGTON, W.Va.- Amber Epling, a political science graduate student at Marshall University, recently received the McManus Fellowship, the West Virginia Legislature's most prestigious internship.

The McManus Fellowship is available to second-year graduate students concentrating in public administration.

As the 2014 McManus Fellow, Epling will conduct research for the House Committee on the Judiciary.

"My primary role will be in the spring when the Legislature is in session," Epling said. "It'll be a lot of sitting in on committee meetings, taking notes, doing research for proposed legislation and presenting bills."

Epling, who is from Gallipolis, Ohio, earned her undergraduate degree in 2004 from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.

The fellowship is named for Lew McManus, who served in the West Virginia House of Delegates from 1966 to 1976, including three terms as speaker.
