Two students with ties to Utah are headed to the White House

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Two students with ties to Utah have been selected as White House interns.

Katharine Marsden of Salt Lake City and Ryan Greenburg of Brigham Young University will serve for the spring session. Marsden has attended the University of Chicago, while Greenburg is from Johns Creek, Ga.

Interns will work in one of several White House departments, including the Domestic Policy Council, the National Economic Council, the Office of Cabinet Affairs, the Office of the First Lady and the Office of Communications.

The program's mission is to make the White House accessible for future leaders across the country and to prepare those devoted to public service for future leadership positions.
