Every summer, we expand our ranks with college students who are passionate about advancing liberty. This year we have seven interns from five schools, bringing new ideas and enthusiasm to the Mackinac Center.

Wyatt Bush joins us from Central Michigan University, where he double majors in economics and online journalism and writes for several online publications. He will spend the summer on the research team.

After years of summer work from her older sister, Shelli, we’re happy to welcome Janelle Cammenga to the team conducting the school privatization survey this summer. She will be a freshman at Dordt College in the fall, where she plans to major in English and minor in chemistry.

Chris DeLuca is a senior at Michigan State University double majoring in political theory at James Madison College and economics. He calls himself passionate about liberty and boxing, and will be joining the communications team.

Continuing the family affair, Nathaniel Lehman is following in his father’s footsteps and joining the Mackinac Center for a second summer, this time on the school privatization survey. Nathaniel is a sophomore at Hillsdale College.

Jonathan Moy is another sophomore at Hillsdale College, where he plans to major in political economy and study public policy. On campus, he is involved with the Student Federation board and PRAXIS, a political-economic club.  

Anna Pfaff is a senior at Hillsdale College majoring in American Studies with a minor in Spanish. She joins the CapCon team after previous work at the National Rifle Association. After graduation she plans to pursue a master’s degree in political philosophy. 

Finally, Phil Schlosser is a senior at Northwood University, double majoring in economics and finance. He joins the research team as a Koch Fellow and is active in local politics and the Michigan Campaign for Liberty.
