U.S. Congressman Lynn Westmoreland has thanked and acknowledged Newnan native Zach Woods on his completion of the United States congressional internship program.
Woods completed his internship in Congressman Westmoreland’s Washington, D.C., office in May, where he provided support to the staff in a variety of ways. He will return to Catholic University where he is working on his master’s degree. Woods received his undergraduate degree from Marshall University.
“I would like to thank Zach for his service,” stated Westmoreland. “He now has firsthand knowledge of how a congressional office functions and a better understanding of our federal government and the legislative process. Zach is a highly motivated and bright individual and was a great asset to our Washington office. I know he will excel in life and I wish him the best in all of his future endeavors.”
Zach Woods is the son of Doug and Lucia Woods of Newnan, and the grandson of Col. Larry and Ann Fitzmorris of Newnan and Maj. Gary and Sela Hubbard of Columbus, Georgia. He also has a sister, Kate Woods, and brother, Preston Woods also of Newnan.
Zach enjoys a variety of activities including lacrosse, boxing and Brazilian jiu-jitus. After graduation Zach hopes to live and serve around the world as a diplomat for the United States government.
Congressman Westmoreland’s office is always accepting resumes from college students interested in interning both in the congressman’s Washington, D.C., office and the congressman’s Newnan office.
