Chelsea Barnes and Anthony C. Locklear II of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have been selected as 2014 Native American Congressional Interns by the Morris K. Udall and Stewart L. Udall Foundation. The 10-week internship is for Native American and Alaskan Native students who want to learn more about the federal government and issues affecting Native Americans.

Barnes, of Hope Mills, is a rising senior majoring in political science and interpersonal/organizational communication studies. Locklear, of Pembroke, is entering his second year at UNC School of Law this year. Both are members of North Carolina's Lumbee tribe.
