People: The intern

A hard-worker and vibrant light across campus, Bailey Doss has recently landed the internship of a lifetime — working with Beaumont’s Mayor Roy West.

“One of my professors last semester was really impressed with my work, and he knew that Mayor West needed an intern, and so he thought of me,” the Beaumont senior says.

Bailey has worked as Mayor West’s intern since mid-July. “I basically handle his social media and (take) photos for different events around the city,” she says.

Bailey works for Mayor West every Saturday, and when she isn’t networking, curating videos, or working on different graphic design projects for him, she joins the Mayor on his outings around Beaumont. Together, Bailey and Mayor West adventure around the city to meet new people and show them that they are cared for.

“I’ve been able to meet a lot of different people through this,” Bailey says. “It’s honestly been so cool to just see the city and see how much Mayor West loves it.”
