Announcing Our New Regional Coordinators

We are excited to announce our newest additions to the Students for Life of America team, Ryan Eyrich, Jake Simon, and Brenna Hartwell!

Ryan Eyrich grew up in Augusta, GA and plans to graduate in May of 2016 with a BA inUntitled History and a double minor in both Government and Economics. Ryan has always been an adamant advisory for the Pro-Life cause. Even as a young boy he knew that abortion was wrong and that every life was special and worth defending. Once Ryan started at Belmont Abbey College, he soon became Belmont’s Pro-Life club’s president. Ryan remained president for his Freshmen and Sophomore year. Besides leading Belmont Abbey’s Pro-Life club, Ryan has participated in the annual March for Life and other Pro-Life events.

Ryan will serve as the Students for Life Southern Regional Coordinator, working in NC, SC, GA, and FL.  He can be contacted at if you need help in his region.

Jake Simon was born and raised in Southern California. He attended Clemson University to study economics and history, where he helped to get Clemson University Students for Life off the ground, before transferring to Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona in 2009. While at NAU he continued to work with the pro-life movement in any way possible, from assisting with events to support local crisis pregnancy centers to leading classes aimed at educating students on how to better communicate their pro-life convictions.

Jake will work alongside Lauren Castillo in the Rocky Mountain Region as the Rocky Mountain Regional Coordinator. Email Jake at for help with your group in AZ, WY, CO, UT, and NM.

Brenna Hartwell is an English major set to graduate from Xavier University in May of 2016. She has been involved with the pro-life community of Cincinnati since she was a freshman at Archbishop McNicholas High School. In her 8 years as a pro-life student, she has attended 8 Marches for Life in Washington, D.C., organized teams for a local annual pro-life 5k, collaborated with Pregnancy Resource Centers around Cincinnati, and organized many events hosted by Xavier’s Students for Life group, such as their annual Pumpkin Memorial. As a new member of the team, she looks forward to using her experience working with other pro-life students along with her skills as a writer to help Students for Life of America to empower the Pro-Life Generation.

Brenna will be working as the Students for Life of America Appalachian Regional Coordinator in KY, TN, and WV. Contact Brenna at
