Joe Schartz

MPP '18


Joseph Schartz is a native of Humboldt, South Dakota, where he developed passions for writing, politics, and rural life on his family’s 80-acre farm. A graduate of South Dakota State University’s journalism program, Joseph worked for the daily newspaper the Argus Leader until enrolling as an MPP student at McCourt. He served two terms as Chairman of the South Dakota College Republicans. When he isn’t discussing politics or watching archived episodes of William F. Buckley Jr.’s Firing Line, you can find him playing tennis in Yates Field House or going on one of his runs around Georgetown.
