Graduate of Indiana University
Parker Mantell of Memphis, Tennessee is a recent graduate of Indiana University, earning a degree in political science, a minor in management, and a certificate from the Political and Civic Engagement program.
In the summer immediately following his freshman year of college, Mantell completed internships with US House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) – both in their Washington, DC offices. He twice served New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) in the summers following sophomore and junior year respectively. Mantell also spent the second semester of junior year in Washington, DC interning for both Fox News Sunday and the US House Committee on Homeland Security.
He serves as a columnist for TheCollegeConservative, a publication that provides a voice for conservative students.
When the national organization Young Jewish Conservatives organized its first fellowship program to Israel, Mantell was one of 30 national campus leaders selected to attend. The fellows met with prominent American and Israeli political figures, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s senior staff and various Israeli Knesset and Foreign Ministry officials.
