Phyllis Schlafly Eagles Internships

Are you a college-age young person wanting to get involved in politics but don’t know where to begin? If so, I’d like to tell you about an amazing opportunity you could have to work side-by-side with our Eagle staff in Washington, D.C. or Saint Louis.

Application to the Phyllis Schlafly Eagles internship program is open to all college students with a passion for seeing conservative principles enacted in public policy and educating Americans on the rich history of the conservative movement. We also accept post-graduate applications and certain high school applications based on merit.

Washington Center students Kaylen, Taneda, and Faith display their class plant growth chart for an Adapted Environmental Science class project.
Washington Center students Kaylen, Taneda, and Faith display their class plant growth chart for an Adapted Environmental Science class project.

During the last three weeks, Washington Center students have been investigating rates of growth for different plants during Adapted Environmental Science. First, the students were offered a choice of the type of seed to grow (corn, pinto bean, pea, radish, or sunflower). The students reviewed plant needs while they each planted their own seed. During week one, the students observed their "germinated" seed and reviewed the vocabulary word "germination." The plant growth was measured at week one (orange), two (yellow), and three (red) and then graphed for each class. The students were required to glue the color-coded rectangles above their pictures while counting. The classes discussed most and least using the data in the graphs. During week three, the students observed the plant parts and saw how the roots need room to grow. The record for the longest plant was a 22" pea plant! The students also learned that sometimes seeds do not grow. Finally, the seeds were transferred to the garden or greenhouse for continued growth.

S.298 would allow unaccountable university spending, borrowing and construction, would greatly increase state spending on higher education, and would limit future tuition increases.

Despite the unaffordability of higher education in South Carolina (student loan debt is among the nation’s highest, and tuition has increased 93 percent from 2008 to 2017), the bill does not cut tuition for students  – which backs $737 million of state general obligation debt.
