Inside Appalachian Voices

Welcome Josh and Tyler!

Appalachian Voices would like to welcome the two newest members to our team, Josh McClenney and Tyler Hughes!

Serving as the North Carolina Field Coordinator for our Energy Democracy Program, Josh will be working to end monopoly utility control over our power system. He is a Piedmont North Carolina native and earned degrees in American history and communications studies from UNC Chapel Hill as well as a masters in Appalachian Studies from Appalachian State University. A lover of sports (Go Heels!), live music and baking, Josh is looking forward to working with communities and organizations across the state.

And as our New Economy Field Coordinator, Tyler is dedicated to seeing the Appalachian region become a place where everyone can reach their full potential. Hailing from Big Stone Gap in Southwest Virginia, Tyler graduated with a B.A. in Bluegrass, Old Time, and Country Music Studies from East Tennessee State University. During his free time he enjoys camping, square dancing and spending time with his pet rabbit, Mabry.
