Crescent Gallagher is an MPA candidate from Stow, Ohio. Originally born in Los Angeles, California, Ohio has been his home for the last 19 years. Crescent has an extensive background in campaign politics which led to his current interests; public policy, politics of Appalachia, and civic engagement. Currently, he is the graduate assistant for the Appalachian Rural Health Institute, where his main project is developing a rural health association.
His future ambitions are to pursue a career in policy, civic engagement, or rural health and he would eventually like to run for public office. Outside of his graduate
assistantship and school, he enjoys being outside and playing sports. If there is one thing he loves as much as politics, it is Cleveland sports teams, for better or worst.
