Men of MenScience: Vincent Solomeno

Our newest addition to the Men of MenScience series is Vincent Solomeno, a college graduate on the fast track to a successful political career. In 2000, Vincent Solomeno was voted Executive Director of the local Democratic Party in his New Jersey hometown. Not bad for a kid who was still a few years shy of the legal voting age. Only 15 at the time, he worked on a hard-hitting campaign that produced their first party win in ten years, and his decisions brought about major improvements in the town, as well as the party's political structure.

He went on to enroll in the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania where he is currently a distinguished military graduate of the university's ROTC program and has been named President of the 2007 Class two years in a row, becoming the youngest Student Body President in Scranton history.

A passion for politics landed Solomeno an internship with General Wesley Clark in the 2004 presidential election, where he gained a valuable perspective on the electoral process. While the concepts of "truth" and "politics" don't always seem to go hand and hand, he believes the greatest politicians are those that have an honest, genuine approach. "It's why I was a major supporter of General Clark. It was challenging sometimes because he wasn't a typical politician," he admits.

Solomeno's most recent achievements have been receiving the acclaimed Fulbright and Harry S. Truman Scholarships based on his leadership and academic excellence. He'll receive money for schooling, a valuable internship in Washington, D.C., and the opportunity to pursue graduate studies abroad. After graduation this May, Vincent will work at the internship before jetting off to Amsterdam to begin his studies as a Fulbright scholar.

Only 21 now, he's already a seasoned political player and encourages people to "show up. Be honest. Be authentic. There's a famous saying---80% of success is just showing up, and I believe that. If you do, you're a catalyst for political change."

Solomeno adds, "It's because I came from a working-class family that I realized you can help make things better through public service. The government is a great agent of positive change."
