Meet Kaylon Day: ACCG Fall Intern
Over the years, ACCG has employed interns from across the state to work in the Atlanta office. Most of these students either attended school in the Atlanta area or came back to this area over the summer to live with their parents.  One of the silver linings in moving to a remote work format this year is the ability to hire students who are not from nor attend an Atlanta area school.
Kaylon Day was hired to assist the research and policy teams during the fall semester. Day is currently a senior at Valdosta State University majoring in political science with a minor in geosciences. While this is her first foray into local government, she has experience working at both the state and federal level. Day interned for the Senate State and Local Government Operations Committee during the 2020 legislative session and spent her summer in Washington, D.C. working as a congressional legislative intern for Congressman Austin Scott. Both experiences fostered her interest in state and local government relations.
Upon graduation, Day plans to pursue a master’s degree in public administration or public policy. When not in class, she is involved in local voter registration/education initiatives and volunteers with a local campaign. During her free time, she enjoys attending concerts, traveling, Indian food, watching movies, and spending quality time with her two rowdy cats and her boyfriend.  
Over the course of her internship with ACCG, Day will track election results, compile county census statistics, analyze survey results, compile statewide data on various issues, and research issues for the upcoming 2021 legislative session. Due to the quality of her work and her continued interest in county government operations, Day will also be interning with ACCG during the spring semester.
