Prichard Committee Student Voice Team
Andrew Brennen, 24, is co-founder of the Prichard Committee Student Voice Team, which helps to amplify and elevate students as partners in improving Kentucky schools. In that capacity, he has launched and led several initiatives, including a successful statewide, student-led public affairs campaign that resulted in the restoration of $14 million for low-income student scholarships. Today, the Prichard Committee Student Voice Team consists of over 150 young people from across Kentucky and serves as a national model for how young people can hold educational institutions accountable to them. Since founding the Prichard Committee Student Voice Team in 2012 as a junior in high school, Brennen has held communications and marketing positions in a number of organizations, from the Obama Foundation to McKinsey & Company. He currently serves on the boards of directors of Student Voice, The Next 50 PAC, and Seek Common Ground.
