After spending a semester with The Washington Center in 2008, it took Max Gigle just a handful of years to break into Capitol Hill’s inner circle. His internship with American Turkish Council helped lead to a staff assistant position with former U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-CT). Less than half a decade later, Gigle’s still a fixture on the Hill, serving as communications director for Rep. Sanford D. Bishop (D-GA).
