Matthew Nance was born in Lebanon, Indiana. He earned his bachelor degree in English literature from DePauw University in 2010, and a master's degree in college student affairs from Eastern Illinois University in 2012. Matthew’s professional experience includes youth leadership, leadership development and education.
As the leadership development specialist for Key Leader, Matthew writes curriculum for leadership and training programs, coordinates Key Leader event logistics and advises the Key Club International board.
“It is very rewarding to see young people deciding to make a positive contribution to their school, in their community, and to this world,” Matthew says. “I love interacting with students who are outright saying they want the world to be a better place, and they are taking advantage of an opportunity to make it so for themselves and their peers.”
In his spare time, Matthew enjoys volunteering with his church’s production team, coaching boys volleyball and spending time with fraternity brothers, friends and family.
