Tech student Jordan Iwanyszyn is running for Putnam County School Board in the August general election. Although heavily involved in politics and helping other candidates get elected, Iwanyszyn is putting together his first campaign for office. Iwanyszyn, a political science major with minors in both business and speech communication, will be putting all the knowledge he has learned over the years of helping local and state officials to make his own campaign successful.
“I feel like I am young enough to remember how being in school is, but mature enough to make choices to help this county’s young minds,” Iwanyszyn said. “With my priority in public service, I have a lot to contribute through the education process. I would like to sit down with some of the students in middle school and talk to them about how the board can help them stay focused in high school.”
Iwanyszyn is currently working on four other campaigns as the Putnam County Republican Party Vice Chairman. He was in SGA at Tech and was president of the College Republican club.
When he has a free moment away from school and the busy life of local politics, Iwanyszyn plays intramural frisbee and basketball. He is also involved in the UCSC and SOC campus ministries on campus.
