We may not see John Carry Easterling, III's name on a ballot yet, but at some point in the next ten years we are certain to see this young man serving us in elected office. He is smart, energetic, and committed to making life better for others.
Why ten years? Easterling has just graduated high school and plans to double major in political science and history at UNCG. He also plans to graduate before venturing into public service. He isn't waiting until after college to get involved, though. Easterling has just been appointed the chair of the Rural Caucus for North Carolina College Democrats and is serving as the chair of the High School Caucus for Young Democrats of America. He recently completed his tenure as the President of North Carolina Teen Democrats.
When asked about his accomplishments in these groups, John quickly gives credit to those who served or are serving with him. He said that among his favorite accomplishments was that his administration increased participation in Teen Dems in North Carolina by adding 20 county chapters and more than 300 members in a six-month time span.
