Nancy Crowell Ruspil has joined the KV Board. As a Mass Communication Instructor at Colorado Mesa University, Nancy teaches courses in media writing, advertising and promotion, and media impact to college students. She also has a family connection to Kids Voting Mesa County since her father, Bruce Crowell, was one of the program’s founders.
In her letter of application, Nancy states, “I inherited my dad’s passion for this mission. I also share his passion for working with youth, and for encouraging them to be thinking, involved members of the world around them. In the Mass Communication courses that I teach at CMU, one of my ongoing priorities is to emphasize independent thought and research related to all types of media, political messages and societal issues. Our free country gives us choices and voices. When young people pay attention to these privileges, their lives and futures change.”
Nancy brings a wealth of relevant experience and an abundance of great ideas for promoting and sustaining Kids Voting Mesa County.
