Declan Steinke
LeTourneau University Chapter Chair
My name is Declan Steinke, and I am a Professional Flight and Aviation Maintenance major at LeTourneau University. I am fairly new to active politics, but not to Conservatism. I was raised in a Christian home and conservative values were taught to me at a young age. When I was 16, the tragic Parkland shooting occurred. After hearing every talking head in media call for gun control, I started my search for a different point of view. This led me to Ben Shapiro and began my journey into conservative philosophy. In 2019, I helped a friend start the YCT LeTourneau chapter. YCT strives to build an active base of real conservatives. I believe YCT is one of the most important organizations a campus can have, and I want to continue the work we are doing on campus and in the community around us.

Daniel Escobedo
Baylor University Chapter Chair
Daniel is a Political Science and History Major attending Baylor University. Daniel wasn’t politically conscious until about 7th grade when the 2016 election was occurring. This - combined with online influences that he had interacted with - broke the left leaning shell that his family had guided him to. In high school, Daniel was very politically involved and in the 2020 election season could often be found in his local Republican headquarters. Daniel hopes to bring Christ’s teachings back to the world’s largest Baptist university, combatting the university’s history revisionism, concessions to non-traditional romantic relationships, and progressive administrators.
