Young America's Foundation alumni nationwide continue to advance conservative ideas in various ways. After the new year, two Foundation alumni will become freshmen members of Congress. Others will serve in state legislatures, and many more work for representatives at all levels of government.
Congressman Bill Huizenga will serve the second district of Michigan in the U.S. House of Representatives. While a student at Calvin College, he was active sharing conservative ideas with his peers. He brought Foundation president Ron Robinson to speak on campus and organized many activities that advanced freedom. Later, he worked for former Congressman Hoekstra and held a position in the state legislature.
Congresswoman Jaime Herrera (pictured) will serve the third district of Washington in the U.S. House of Representatives. While a student at the University of Washington, she attended the 2002 West Coast Leadership Conference and participated in many activities to share conservative ideas with her peers. She has been a state legislator in Washington and also worked for Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers.
At the state level, Cameron DeJong will begin a term in the New Hampshire legislature, and Jonathan Miller and David Novstrup will continue their service to West Virginia and South Dakota, respectively.
