Evan graduated magna cum laude with high honors in Political Science from Kenyon College in 2018. At Kenyon, he was involved with a fraternity, various singing groups, campus government, and the Outdoors Club. He also wrote occasional opinion pieces on students rights for the campus newspaper. His interest in the freedom of thought on college campuses began when, as a freshman, his advisor recommended that he read Allan Bloom’s The Closing of the American Mind. As a senior, Evan wrote an honors thesis on Plato’s Laches, which led him to more fully understand the vital role that a climate of free expression plays in liberal education.
Evan has spent eight summers working for a Boy Scouts of America summer camp and continues volunteering for the organization when he can. He is thrilled to be joining the team at FIRE.
