Gabe Johnson

Gabe Johnson is an 18-year-old senior homeschooler, who has attended three consecutive iGovern camps through Generation Joshua—two at iGovern West and one at iGovern East. He was the winning vice presidential candidate at his first West camp, and was made president by default his second year at iGovern West due to the incumbent president not returning.

Molly Kluck

Living in Virginia, Molly Kluck is a Christian 16-year-old homeschooler who has been involved with campaigns since the 2008 presidential election. Since then, she has participated in three Generation Joshua Student Action Teams, one for the 2012 presidential election and two for Virginia races. She has also attended Generation Joshua’s iGovern East camp. Someday Molly hopes to organize volunteers in races around the country with efficient yet personal ways of campaigning, train up young people to take a role in the world around them, and be a mentor for others.

Aaron Tackett

Aaron Tackett recently moved to Inez, Kentucky. He is a public school student and currently takes pictures at local sporting events and also does some web design.

Noah Wills

Currently living in Norfolk, Virginia, Noah Wills is a homeschool sophomore. As his father served in the U.S. Navy, his family moved around to places ranging from Rhode Island to Germany. With the exception of one year in German school, his mom homeschooled him for most of his life. Noah’s interests include politics, government, and making a difference in the world. Accrediting Generation Joshua with much of the knowledge he has of government, Noah continues to stay involved in his local community.
