WPU College Republicans Recieve Chapter of the Year April 9, 2009

Posted by wpucrs in Uncategorized.

It is hard to believe that three years ago there was no College Republicans Chapter on the William Penn Campus. Since the group’s founding during the fall term of 2006, young people with conservative and patriotic values have been making their mark on this campus and in this state.

This past weekend, the WPU CR’s attended the Iowa Federation of College Republicans Annual Convention for the third consecutive year. Not only was William Penn in attendance but actually had the largest representation there! A school with 800 traditional students bringing a vigorous group of eighteen delegates astounded the other schools, including ISU and U of I which collectively brought fifteen delegates. The group’s tremendous representation along with their technological efforts for political awareness attracted so much attention that they were named “Chapter of the Year” by the IFCR executive board. For such a small school with such a young program to win this award is truly an admirable reflection of its members and supporters.

This is not, however, the only award the WPU CRs walked away with that day. The “Activist of the Year” award was given to senior Nik Rule, who is the chairman of the WPU CR’s and one of the founding members of the chapter. He received this honor as tribute for the incredible job he has done in rallying his fellow statesmen and community members for the Republican cause on countless occasions. The tremendously motivating weekend also included various speakers including the state chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa, the President of Iowans for Tax Relief, and several Representatives.

For more information about this dynamic group on campus, 1) visit their Blog a twpucollegepublicans.wordpress.com, 2) follow them on Twitter, searching for WPUCRS 3) or join the official Facebook group. Also, one can contact the executive board if they have any questions or simply want more information. The board is made up of Nik Rule, Melisa Wink, Mayci Rule, Liz Tvedt, Levi State, Zack Shrock, and Rebecca Bartle.
