Congressman Ted Poe today announced internship recipients for his Jefferson County office.

Congressman Poe is proud to have a mother/daughter team assisting him this session: Miss Nashia Sassau and her mother, Ms. Hilda Pickney.

Sassau and Pickney intern Monday-Friday and assist answering phones, research and routine clerical duties. "We are so fortunate to have these ladies interning in our office," said Congressman Poe. "They are a huge help to us and they do such a great job. I am proud of their service."

Sassau first met Congressman Poe and became acquainted with his office when she was the 2006 1st Runner up in the Miss Juneteenth Pageant.
