2 students on the job in White House


January 27, 1994|By JONI GUHNE

Jennifer Stuckert, a recent Anne Arundel Community College graduate, is learning how history is made.

Stuckert, 25, and fellow AACC student Patricia DeWitt Rayfield of Severna Park are among 200 college juniors and seniors from 41 states who won White House internships.

Stuckert and Rayfield work in the Health Care Policy Office run by Ira Magaziner, a leading architect of the Clinton administration's health-care policy.

"This is giving me an up-close view of how the government works, inside out," says Stuckert, who will major in history at the University of Maryland this fall.

Her internship began last week and continues through April.

Stuckert, a former linguistic specialist and intelligence analyst at Fort Meade, returns home to her 3-year-old daughter, Brittney, and husband, Army Staff Sgt. Brian Stuckert.

On her third day on the job, Rayfield was invited into the East Room to watch President Clinton deliver his weekly radio address.

Rayfield, the mother of two adult daughters, will receive ::TC degree in communications from Trinity College in Vermont this spring.

Both women are hopeful that the addition to their resumes of 5-months at the White House will open other doors of opportunity.
