Post image for NeW Senior Spotlight: Caroline Rushing

Our first senior  is Caroline Rushing. Caroline will be graduating from from the University of Virginia. She served as the President and Vice President of Events at the University of Virginia NeW Chapter. Caroline got involved with NeW during her sophomore year and will be greatly missed.

Joining NeW ignited my passion for conservative ideas and turned me into an activist at the University. Being a member and leader in NeW led me to pursue an internship at the Clare Boothe Policy Institute where I learned more about the conservative women’s movement, and how to be a more effective activist at UVA. After my internship at CBLPI, I became an intern at Young America’s Foundation, which solidified my desire to pursue a career after graduation within the Conservative Movement. NeW created a great network of likeminded women who have also become dear friends over the years. I am so appreciative for the impact that NeW has had on my time at the University of Virginia.

Caroline is excited for graduation and her job that will take her all the way to California!

Congratulations Caroline! We appreciate your dedication to NeW and everything you have done for the chapter at the University of Virginia!

Young America’s Foundation is thrilled that the job taking this rising star to California is with us at the Reagan Ranch! We’re so glad she’s officially joining our ranks. And we’re always glad to build on our strong partnership with NEW and CBLPI!

Yes, we’ll miss her at NeW, but are excited about seeing what she does as well. I’m jealous you’ll be working with her!

Congratulation! Please remember that women have been mad at men for along time.
As the child of an immigrant, myself and alot of men had nothing to do with slavery or sexism in the past. We are sorry for this awful past! BUT, feminist have attacked being male, and blamed us for any and everything. Women are 52% of America, -with a vote, and equal access to everything.
Please start a new (new). A new way- that includes men, in an attempt to bring EVERYONE- oppourtunity, and justice! Please end the- us VRS them! If you treat men as an enemy- an enemy they will(have) become!

Congrats Caroline! Have a blast in California on the Reagan Ranch. You made great contributions to the NeW chapter at UVA and I have no doubt you’ll make a lasting and positive impact at YAF!
