William Joseph Bone

William “Joe” Bone is a graduate of Colorado State University where he received a B.A. in Economics with a minor in Business Administration in 2012. During his time at Colorado State, Mr. Bone was a National Merit Scholar and a member of the National Honor Society, as well as the International Honor Society for Economics. With a background in economics and a desire to work in the legal field, Mr. Bone intends to pursue a post-graduate degree in law and plans to work in public advocacy. Mr. Bone believes the John Jay Institute will provide him with an orientation to constitutional jurisprudence and a principled perspective on the social, political, and legal mechanisms of American public life.

Alan Crippen has had long experience educating young scholars in the political principles and spiritual values of our Founding Fathers, helping them to translate those principles and values into effective action in the public square. Because young people are immersed in a popular culture that is, in many ways, opposed to such ideals, the importance of this work cannot be overstated. The seriousness and professionalism of his Fellows speaks well of Mr. Crippen's work. I have been fortunate to have a number of Fellows on my staff and working in my Washington, DC office as interns. I have been consistently impressed-not only by the quality of their work but also by their solid understanding of our nation's founding doctrines and principles. The John Jay Institute continues to form young minds and souls in the same impressive manner."
