    Jacobs spent her spring semester with Congressman Geoff Davis as an intern in Washington D.C.

    Jacobs, 21, a Williamstown High School graduate, worked with Davis in Washington from January to May of 2010.

    “I worked with him (Davis) previously in his district office and I was surprised and excited to get the Washington D.C. internship,” Jacobs said.
