The Agenda

Victory alum working for the Department of Education

Former Victory Congressional Intern Levi Bohanan, a Summer 2014 intern for Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, D-N.Y., has accepted a full-time position at the Department of Education.
Levi completed his degree at Texas A&M University, where he worked for the Dean of Faculties Office, as well as for the Department of Multicultural Services as an orientation speaker for incoming 
students. While at Texas A&M, Levi also served as president of the LGBTQA Aggies Student Association. After graduating cum laude with a degree in political science in December 2014, Levi moved to Washington and worked as a canvasser at NARAL Pro-Choice America.
These days, Levi is working as a Confidential Assistant in the Office of Legislation and Congressional Affairs at the Department of Education. He’s particularly interested in working with education legislation and policy concerning students with disabilities.
“I’ve always wanted to work at the intersection of education and policy,” Levi noted, “which was actually what led me, in part, to the VCI program at Victory.” According to Levi, he could not be at the positon he is in now without his VCI experience. “It helped give me the skills to navigate DC and gain invaluable and hands-on work experience in these particular issue areas.”
Levi hopes to go on to continue to work in education policy, focusing on higher education policy and finance and its effects on low income and minority students. Wherever Levi ends up going, we are sure he’s on to great things.
