History Major Ruth Behling Selected for FBI Internship
Congratulations are in order for History major Ruth Behling, who has won a "Scholastic Honors Internship" with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). She will graduate from UAH in May 2009, and she will complete the Scholastic Honors Internship from June 8, 2009 to August 14, 2009 in Washington, DC.
Ruth has worked very hard during her years at UAH. In addition to completing a History major, she has also completed minors in Art History and Global Studies. Ruth is also a member of the Phi Alpha Theta history honorary. The FBI internship is also a clear marker of Ruth's persistence. As she stated, "When I recieved word that I was second place I stayed with the application process. Then I received word I actually received a position. This was not another "almost" in my life but an actual opportunity to do something different." Ruth hopes that the internship "will open doors for me to venture into and help me figure out what I want to do for the rest of my life." She also stated that, "With this internship I can learn how I can stop the corruption that is prevalant in our nation."
We are so happy for you, Ruth, and looking forward to hearing about your experiences!
