Named after the great Mississippi State University (MSU) alumni, Senator John C. Stennis and Congressman G.V. Sonny Montgomery, the Stennis-Montgomery Association (SMA) allows students of all backgrounds and academic disciplines to participate in politics. The SMA serves as a resource for students who want to register to vote and become involved in the political process in their community and nationally. Throughout the year, the SMA sponsors various speakers on campus and provides workshops that guide students through the application process for internship opportunities in Washington, D.C., and across the United States.
Each year, approximately 30 of the most active members of the SMA travel to Washington, D.C. The Stennis Center for Public Service Leadership organizes an annual luncheon for the SMA students to interact with the Mississippi congressional delegation. This year’s SMA luncheon on Capitol Hill takes place on Thursday, March 14, 2019. This year’s program also includes a tour of the Marine Barracks Washington, D.C. (also known as “8th and I”) on Monday, March 11, 2019.
