U.S. Sen. Olympia Snowe is praising the efforts of UMaine student Nate Wildes, a junior from Cumberland who worked as an intern in her Washington, D.C. office during the spring semester. UMaine’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences manages the Congressional Internship Program that afforded Wildes this opportunity. “I cannot thank Nate enough for his extraordinary work for me and the people of Maine as an intern,” said Senator Snowe. “Time and again, Nate went above and beyond what was asked of him and he has truly been an outstanding asset for me and my staff. He certainly epitomizes Maine’s hallmark work ethic and can-do spirit many times over.”
A political science major and an innovation engineering minor, Wildes also serves as the president of the UMaine Class of 2012. He is the son of Bruce and Nancy Wildes of Cumberland.
