Changing of the Guard Date: December 15 2004 No: 330 Changing of the Guard
With Lloyd Pierson's departure, Marie Wheat has been named acting Chief of Staff and Chief of Operations responsible for the day-to-day management of the Peace Corps. Although Wheat is not an RPCV and has limited overseas experience, in her two years at the agency she has come to be respected as someone with good political skills who listens and delegates authority and we wish her the best in her new position.

A Peaceful Endeavor

Jun 17, 2002 - Roll Call Author(s): Jennifer Yachnin

A Peaceful Endeavor. Rep. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) bids farewell to his chief of staff, Marie Wheat, who moves to the Peace Corps to be director of Congressional relations.

Wheat was appointed to the post by President Bush.

The Mauldin, S.C., native made her Capitol Hill debut in 1993 as budget analyst for then-Rep. John Kasich (R-Ohio).

She went on to spend three years as legislative director to then- Rep. Steve Largent (R-Okla.) before moving across the Capitol in 1998 to serve as staff director of the Senate Governmental Affairs subcommittee on oversight of government management, restructuring and the District of Columbia under Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.).

Wheat became chief of staff in the Palmetto State lawmaker's office in 1999.

Before coming to the Hill, Wheat worked for both the Strom Thurmond Institute of Government and Public Affairs at Clemson University and Citizens for a Sound Economy.

Wheat, a 1991 alumna of Clemson University, has a bachelor's in economics and political science.

Please help me as to how to guide a young college graduate who wants to become associated with congressional relations. Is ther a proper place avilable in the Peacre Corp. Is this a feasible place to start or should he apply for an internship? Respectfully, Dr. G.L.D.Burnett

He should contact his congressional representative's office and inquire about internships in that rep's office or on the house or senate staff. He'll need the recommendation from you and his senator and/or representative.
