 Brendan Pringle with CanvasBrendan Pringle, Development Officer

As a student of Cal Poly State University, Brendan Pringle first became active in the Conservative Movement as the only conservative writer for his university newspaper. From there, he was elected president of Cal Poly's conservative club. Young America's Foundation helped him revive the club, establishing it as the official conservative voice on campus with activities like Freedom Week and groundbreaking guest speaker events.

After the university all but denied the club funding for speakers, Mr. Pringle spearheaded a major 60-day fundraising effort, seeking out private supporters from the community to bring New York Times best-selling author Ann Coulter and actor/social critic Joseph Phillips to Cal Poly's campus. In April of 2012, he became a YAF Club 100 activist, and was later recognized by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) for his efforts to highlight the importance of free speech on campus.

Mr. Pringle was also a recipient of the Phillips Foundation's Ronald Reagan College Leaders Scholarship for his conservative activism, and was highlighted by Cal Poly's Office of Student Affairs for his efforts to bring intellectual diversity to campus.

Upon graduating with a BA in English and a Law and Society minor, Mr. Pringle became a summer intern through YAF's National Journalism Center, working under media legend and former Washington Times editor John Solomon for two news wires--EnergyGuardian and WashingtonGuardian.

Mr. Pringle has remained committed to the ideals of the Young America's Foundation, and is excited to bring his campus activism experience and his enthusiasm for the Conservative Movement to the YAF team as a Development Officer.

One of six children, his younger brothers remain active in YAF's programs at the high school and university level.
