The Leadership Institute recognizes an employee each quarter. This quarter’s award recipient is Emily Larsen, who effectively works with several departments to spread conservatism across the country.
Although her official title is Regional Field Coordinator, Emily has represented the Leadership Institute at student conferences and regularly coordinates with the Leadership Institute's Campus Reform team to expose liberal bias on college campuses.
This past quarter, Emily managed Leadership Institute field representatives in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and New Mexico as they trained and managed over 180 conservative student groups in these states.
In addition to her regular responsibilities, Emily promoted Campus Reform through articles, radio interviews, and television appearances. She has gone above and beyond to help Campus Reform uncover liberal abuse and biases on college campuses.
“Even though this would be more than enough work to keep an average employee busy, Emily also volunteered to host several of LI’s live webinars. I hereby recognize Emily Larsen as LI’s Employee of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of 2015,” Leadership Institute founder and president Morton Blackwell announced at the January all staff meeting. “Please join me in a round of applause in appreciation for Emily’s work.”
After the applause subsided, Morton ended with, “Congratulations, Emily, for your outstanding job as team player and serving as a role model for all LI employees.”
Emily Larsen is the Leadership Institute’s Regional Field Coordinator for the Piedmont region, where she builds the conservative student movement on college campuses in the District of Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and New Mexico. Previously, she worked for LI as a Field Representative in Kentucky and West Virginia, and was an intern for the Campus Leadership Program.
Before joining LI, Emily worked in the office of Mayor Richard J. Berry in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she interned and acted as Boards and Commissions Liaison. She graduated from the University of New Mexico in 2014 with a B.A. in Political Science. In college, she led her Young Americans for Liberty chapter, interned for the New Mexico State Legislature, and volunteered for numerous campaigns.
