Samuel K. Gove Hall of Fame
Next Induction 2015
In 1990, Illinois Issues, the state's leading public affairs magazine, established the Samule K. Gove Illinois Legislative Intern Hall of Fame honoring former legislative interns whose careers have exemplified distinguished public service.
The first eleven members of the Hall of Fame were inducted in 1990. Additional outstanding former interns were inducted in the odd numbered years beginning in 1993. An additional four interns will be inducted in November 2015.
Former interns become eligible for the Hall of Fame ten years after serving as interns.
