MGSP Spotlight: Philip Schichtel

March 30, 2021

This week, we shine the spotlight on Michigan Government Semester Program participant Philip Schichtel, a senior studying political science with a peace and justice studies minor. Philip is interning with state Sen. Sean McCann, D-20.

This is his first internship and he looks forward to helping and serving his district's constituents. He is passionate about human rights with a focus on LGBT rights and climate issues.
