Following his sophomore year, Brother Trent Hoekstra, South Dakota ’23, landed internships in Washington, D.C. with his home-state congressmen Rep. Randy Feenstra (R-Iowa) and Sen. Chuck Grassley, Alpha Gamma Rho, (R-Iowa). A year later, he was on an internship search again and reached back out to Rep. Feenstra’s staff. The response was something better: a job offer.
As soon as classes finished this past spring, Brother Hoekstra returned to the Capitol as a legislative correspondent. Even as he is finishing coursework to graduate and complete his term as president of the Gamma Alpha Chapter this fall, he continues to work full time, remotely drafting correspondence and researching legislation for the congressman.
