Baylor Students Receive Placement In FBIHonors Internship Program

August 21, 2007

Christine Tamer, a junior journalism major from Colleyville, Texas, and senior James Nortey, a philosophy and political science major from Cedar Park, Texas, received places this spring in the highly competitive Federal Bureau of Investigation Honors Internship Program. Tamer and Nortey are two of only 56 students selected from a nationwide pool of thousands of applicants. 
"The mission of the FBI is to protect and defend the United States against terrorists and foreign threats," Tamer said. "I can't think of a more important, exciting and life-changing job. I applied for this internship because one day I hope to work for the FBI and serve my country."
"I will be briefed in more detail about my internship soon; however, I know a portion of the internship allows me to trail some of the high-level executives at the FBI, as well as write articles for FBI publications," Nortey said. Nortey also was recently selected as a Henry L. Robinson Scholar by Phi Beta Kappa and was named one of three Baylor finalists for the Truman Scholar award.
Tamer is working with the Records Management Division in Winchester, Va., while Nortey is employed in the Law Enforcement Coordination office at the FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C.
