Two Round Rock young women have made productive use of their summer vacations, learning about county government and public service as they served as interns for Precinct 1 Commissioner Terry Cook and Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace Bill Gravell.

Cassie Thomas, a Round Rock High School rising senior, interns with Cook, while Chandler Craig, who is heading back to Blinn College in Brenham this fall, spent her summer in Gravell’s office.

Thomas said her time spent with Cook made an impression on her.

“I didn’t know anything about local government before coming into this internship,” she said. “I didn’t know what a county commissioner was.”

Thomas, 16, and her family moved from Arizona to Round Rock in 2014 after her mother was offered a job at Scott & White.
