Local Impact by High School Senior

In his role as a student intern with Marin County Supervisor Katie Rice, 17-year-old Noah Marty, a Drake High School senior, is all about getting things done to make a difference in people’s lives. Since early October, he has served at the heart of local government with District 2 Board Aides Nancy Vernon and Max Perrey doing research on numerous projects.

 “This internship is really cool,” he said. “I’m getting a lot of day-in, day-out experience in local government politics and doing research on issues that Supervisor Rice wants to investigate.” His internship supervisor, Nancy, said,“Noah has made a big contribution to our office. He’s proven himself to be an amazing researcher and approaches projects with enthusiasm and confidence. And, importantly, he’s very dependable.”

At school, Noah is enrolled in an environmental studies program that emphasizes how individuals can have an impact through personal involvement. Outside school hours, he is a four-year member of the Mock Trial Team and the competitive Robotics Team. He has worked summers with the San Geronimo Valley Food Bank and serves on a 10-member advisory council for the Marin Health and Human Services Department. After graduation, Noah plans to attend Sacramento State and major in political science.
