We asked our board members to answer a handful of pretty standard questions without thinking too hard about them. We found that YPAL’s board is made up of some interesting young professionals.  

Rudolph Spencer III was born and raised in West Louisville. He graduated from the University of Louisville with a BA in Political Science (2009) and from the University of Michigan with a Master of Social Work (2012).This is Rudy’s first year on YPAL’s Board of Directors. Be sure to ask him for his “Born here, Raised here and KNEW I wasn’t going to be here” speech or just ask him to tell you about his first YPAL experience. You’ll enjoy both.
