Congratulations to New IOP Director Trey Grayson!
The Harvard Republican Club is thrilled to congratulate Harvard alum and Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson for being selected as the next Director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University. Mr. Grayson has been a conservative hero for many years and will leave behind an exemplary tenure in Kentucky politics when he moves to Boston this upcoming semester. First elected as KY Secretary of State in 2003, Mr. Grayson was reelected by a 14-point margin in 2007, a year in which Democrats took back control of most of Kentucky’s government. During his tenure, Secretary Grayson led efforts to improve civic education in Kentucky classrooms and established nationally recognized programs in business services, elections, and government innovation. While working on all of these accomplishments, Secretary Grayson also reduced his office operating expenses by 15 percent.
With his remarkable experience and accomplishments, Mr. Grayson is undoubtedly an excellent choice to lead the Institute of Politics. The Harvard Republican Club is very excited to work with him in the future.
