Katie Cupp joins the team as a development officer at Young America’s Foundation’s Reagan Ranch Center. She is originally from Marceline, Missouri, and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Central Missouri with a double major in political science and communication studies.

Katie became involved with YAF as a student after attending the Foundation’s Fall College Retreat during her freshman year. This conference ignited her passion and inspired her to bring the first Young Americans for Freedom chapter to her college campus. Katie served as chair of this chapter for two years. Throughout her time in this role, Katie organized three YAF campus lectures, featuring Lt. Col. Allen West, Bay Buchanan, and Burgess Owens. Her chapter also hosted the yearly 9/11: Never Forget Project as well as events promoting the Second Amendment and the right to life.

Katie also served as the student body vice president and was involved in Alpha Omicron Pi. She spent a summer at YAF’s national headquarters as a William & Berniece Grewcock Intern Scholar.

She looks forward to connecting with the Foundation’s generous supporters, students, and staff who work tirelessly to advance the Conservative Movement.
