Andrew Brennen is an Education Fellow at Hattaway Communications. Brennen serves as the youngest member of the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, an independent education advocacy group in Kentucky; a member of the board of advisors for Seek Common Ground, a coalition of independent education advocacy organizations spanning 8 states; and a member of Generation Citizen’s Vote 16 advisory council working to lower the voting age to 16 across the country. Before joining Hattaway, Brennan worked on civic equity and youth engagement at the Obama Foundation and digital strategy at Mckinsey & Company. He cofounded the Prichard Committee Student Voice Team, an organization dedicated to supporting students as partners in improving Kentucky schools. In that role, he led a successful statewide campaign to restore $14 million for need-based college scholarships, as well as an investigation into the tripwires that prevent high school students from smoothly transitioning to college. Brennan earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
