Sam Mariscal is the Leadership Institute's Regional Field Coordinator for Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York. Originally from California, Sam attended Ashland University's Ashbrook Center, in Ashland Ohio, where he majored in Political Philosophy and History.
No stranger to activism, while in school he served two terms as president of Ashland University College Republicans. During his time there he assisted in the election of several officials while balancing his duties as a student and chapter president.
One of Samuel's major accomplishments was doing philanthropy work by helping raise funds for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Ohio. Sam was motivated to enter politics thanks to the inspiration of his professors: Dr. Stephen Tootle and Dr. Peter Schramm.
