June 06, 2005

Frostburg State University junior Robin Strange of Hagerstown will serve as an intern in the office of U.S. Sen. Paul Sarbanes, D-Md., this fall, through the newly established J. Glenn Beall Jr. Institute for Public Affairs at FSU.

Strange, a graduate of Smithsburg High School, is the daughter of Ned and Millie Strange. She is a political science and history major with a minor in international studies. Strange will receive a $2,500 stipend for her 12-week internship in Sarbanes' Washington office, according to a press release issued by the university.

The Beall Institute was established to promote a spirit of civic responsibility and an increased knowledge of government affairs and the political process at all levels. The institute's initiatives include scholarships, research fellowships, internship stipends and outreach programs. The institute was launched in May.

Beall, R-Md., served as Maryland's United States senator from 1971 to 1977, and previously served as the 6th District U.S. representative and a Maryland state delegate. Since leaving office, he has continued his tradition of public service, serving numerous national, state and local initiatives, most recently chairing the Canal Place Preservation and Development Authority, dedicated to preserving the history of the C&O Canal, according to the press release.
