Jordan Clements
University of Texas Chapter Chair
A native of central Texas, Jordan A. Clements has been a staunch supporter of small government ever since the election of Barack Obama and the passage of Obamacare opened his young eyes to the danger of having “the government telling him what to do” (thanks Obama). While such beliefs, formed without the help of his parents as they would want you to know, took many forms--such as a Republican in youth, a libertarian in High School, and now a conservative--he has always maintained that only through private enterprise, not government handouts, can one achieve success. After graduating from Jack C. Hays High School, Jordan moved on to attend the University of Texas at Austin where he now studies Finance at the McCombs School of Business as a Junior and has been given the honor of College Scholar. On top of his activities in YCT, you can catch Jordan as a member of Har-D-Har Improv performing shows once every two weeks.

A graduate of Jack C. Hays High School in 2018 Matthew packed his bags and got out of the dreadful area known as "longhorn country" (ssssss) and moved to the beautiful Aggieland to attend Texas A&M University and is currently a Junior (A A A WHOOP) pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Economics.
