STURBRIDGE — State Rep. Todd Smola, R-Palmer, has been very pleased with the work of legislative intern Nathan Walker, a Sturbridge native, and he welcomed the commencement of the 187th Congress by announcing that Walker will continue to serve his office this spring.

"For well over a year, Nathan has been an incredibly valuable asset to my office, and I am pleased to announce that he will be staying on board as we embark upon the 2011 legislative session," Smola said.

Born and raised in Sturbridge, Walker attended Tantasqua Regional High School before moving on to the University of Richmond, where he double-majored in political science and history. After graduating in 2008, Walker moved to Boston to pursue his law degree at Suffolk University Law School.

"Nathan brings additional knowledge and depth to this job thanks to his legal education," Smola said. "His innumerable contributions to the office will certainly be missed when he finishes law school in the spring and moves on to pursue a legal career."

Walker is keeping his options open regarding future plans after law school. According to Smola, his daily tasks of researching bills and laws, dealing with constituents, working on special projects, and participating in functions have well-prepared him for his next destination.
