  • Conservatives on the Rise: Wierenga Joins the YAF Team

    SAVANNA INTERNSavanna Wierenga of Grand Rapids, Michigan is one of the newest interns at the Reagan Ranch Center. She is currently a sophomore at Hillsdale College, where she plans on pursuing a degree in Marketing as well as a minor in Speech.

    Savanna's first encounter with Young America's Foundation was at the 2012 Regional Conference in Columbus, OH. Her passion for the Conservative Movement flourished after having the opportunity to listen to speakers such as Patrick Coyle and Ron Robinson and meeting like-minded individuals. Following the conference, she decided to get involved in Hillsdale's new Young Americans for Freedom chapter by becoming Event Chair. In just one year, Hillsdale Young Americans for Freedom have brought various speakers to campus, such as Michael Medved and Katie Pavlich. 

    This February, Savanna attended the New Beginnings Seminar at the Reagan Ranch Center. Not only did she fall in love with the scenery around Santa Barbara, but also by visiting President Reagan's ranch she gained a better sense of his way of life. After experiencing the Ranch, she truly understood Reagan's character and developed a deeper respect for the man she already admired. During the conference, Savanna realized it was her duty to fight to reform America back to its constitutional principles. In order to fulfill that duty, Savanna applied for an internship with Young America's Foundation. Savanna looks forward to becoming more involved and educated throughout her internship so she can continue to play an important role in the Conservative Movement. Savanna feels very blessed for the opportunity to intern with the Foundation this summer.  

    For the next few years, Savanna plans to continue studying at Hillsdale College while developing Hillsdale's YAF chapter so that it may be a beacon of hope in a country that has largely forgotten the meaning.
