Joshua Jenkins

Joshua Jenkins is currently a senior in Aerospace Engineering at Virginia Tech. Since his freshman year, Jenkins has been heavily involved in the Space Frontier Foundation and consequently was an original volunteer in the March Storm reboot in 2015. Jenkins has taken time to attend multiple trips to Capitol Hill with a variety of organizations including the Space Frontier Foundation, AIAA, Explore Mars, and the Space Exploration Alliance. Jenkins also is a co-founder and current executive director of his own student advocacy group called Students on Capitol Hill. Jenkins believes that encouraging students to become involved with policy making, especially as they pursue technical endeavors, is critical as the NewSpace industry continues to revolutionize the way humans go to space. Jenkins will be interning this summer with United Launch Alliance and returning to Virginia Tech the following academic year to complete his masters. He currently plans on returning to ULA full time.
