Pegasus Institute is proud to announce that Jonathan Shell, the outgoing Majority Leader of the Kentucky House of Representatives will join us as the Director of State Initiatives. In his new capacity, Jonathan will work to expand our footprint statewide allowing us to focus even more on local policy issues and strengthening relationships with local officials.
Prior to joining Pegasus Institute, Shell was the youngest member of the Kentucky General Assembly and elected the first Republican House Majority Leader in state history at the age of 28. He represented District 71 which covers Garrard, Rockcastle, and a portion of Madison Counties. He holds a bachelors degree from Eastern Kentucky University.
This is, obviously, very exciting for us. There is much great work ahead!
