Howdy! My name is Chris Kotula and I am currently interning for Congressman John Carter on Capitol Hill.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the ANRP 25th anniversary reception being held in the Capitol. The event was a time for Aggies from all over the Washington, D.C. area to come together and celebrate the achievements of the ANRP program. It truly was a once in a lifetime experience, showing me in person how extensive the Aggie network is even so far away from home. The doors that the network opens up is truly amazing, I got to meet congressional staffers, lobbyists, a United States Colonel, and a handful of congressman all of which were alum of Texas A&M. Regardless of their occupation or years outside of the university everyone was incredibly nice and showed their Aggie spirit and willingness to help me out in any way I felt necessary. I ended up going home with a pocketful of business cards and new connections from all over the D.C. area.
