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.

Secularist ideology is so entrenched in the policy-making and opinion-forming strata that it comes close to being the Established Religion of American public life. Thoughtful Christian young people who are interested in public affairs have few models of what it might mean to approach public affairs with a distinctively Christian point of view. Alan Crippen is one of those few models. He has been helping to form the minds of young Christians for years, and I celebrate the John Jay Institute."
