United States Magistrate Judge William H. Baughman, Jr., right, of Cleveland, Ohio, installed Jessica DeLong of Shamokin, left, a junior politics major and history minor at Saint Vincent College, as a judicial intern on Feb. 16 in the McKenna School’s Liberty Room on the campus of Saint Vincent College.
She will serve during the spring semester in the United States District Court in the Northern District of Ohio. She is the 14th Saint Vincent student to participate in a remote internship program between Judge Baughman’s office and Saint Vincent College. Instructional sessions are conducted by Webex videoconference and by telephone conference.
The internship was developed by Judge Baughman, a 1971 graduate of Saint Vincent College, with the cooperation of Fr. Rene Kollar, O.S.B., Dean of the Saint Vincent College School of Humanities and Fine Arts; Dr. Gary Quinlivan, Dean of the Alex G. McKenna School of Business, Economics and Government; Dr. Jason Jividen, assistant professor of politics, who will be moderator of the internship; and Dr. Jerome Foss, associate professor of politics.
DeLong is active at Saint Vincent in the History Club, Alpha Lambda Delta (for excellent achievement in the first year of study), Alpha Chi (scholarship in all academic disciplines), Pi Alpha Theta (international honor society in history), Aurelius Scholars, Orientation Committee, Pre-Law Society (president) and Pizza and Politics Club (vice president). She has been named to the Dean’s List for five consecutive semesters.
A 2015 graduate of Our Lady of Lourdes Regional School, she is the daughter of Melody DeLong.
DeLong said that she enrolled at Saint Vincent because of its small and close atmosphere and the Political Science Department as a whole. “It is a truly remarkable department with truly remarkable professors and boundless opportunities,” she commented.
She is a member of Mother Cabrini Parish in Shamokin.
