– About Joe DePinto
“Yelm has been my home since I moved here when I was 5 years old. My childhood growing up in Yelm has been truly wonderful.”
“I am a product of Yelm Community Schools, having also gone to Mill Pond, Yelm Middle School and Yelm High School. After high school I was able to attend Eastern Washington University, the first in my family to attend college, through the Achievers Scholarship funded mainly through the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. There I majored in Government with minors in History and Communication. At EWU I became a member of Sigma Nu Fraternity, where I eventually was elected treasurer and later President. I was also a member of Eastern’s Debate team as well as President of the College Republicans.
During college I applied for an internship with Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers and got it. That internship then turned into a job with her in the position of Congressional Fellow for multimedia. After EWU and the Congresswoman’s office, I went to work at the State Legislature where I still work today as Executive Legislative Assistant to State Representative Paul Harris, the House Republican Whip.”
