Oklahoma Conference student chosen for GBCS Ethnic Young Adult Internship Program
ViaFaith McCullough, a senior political science student at Philander Smith College in Little Rock, Arkansas and member of the Oklahoma Conference, has been selected as one of four interns for the Global Board of Church & Society’s Ethnic Young Adult Internship Program.
McCullough is an advocate of peace with justice from Oklahoma City. At school, she serves as the student chair of the Panther Pantry and Fresh Market, public relations coordinator of the Political Science Club and a member of the Social Justice Institute.
In 2018, McCullough served as an arts coordinator at Project Transformation, a reading literacy summer program tasked at increasing the literacy level of K-5th grades. From a young age, her roots in activism were cultivated by her family’s activism in the local Oklahoma City area. Her work in the community has inspired her passion for human rights and community advocacy.
During her EYA internship this summer, McCullough will work with RESULTS, an organization that moves to influence political decisions. While at RESULTS, her work will focus on organizing meetings and attending policy-based discussions. She hopes that through this internship God will continue to direct her in the right path.
McCullough is the daughter of Heartland District Superintendent Victor McCullough and Rev. Nancy McCullough. Read more about all the interns at www.umcjustice.org.
