Logan Heley is a longtime Overland Park Ward 1 resident running for the City Council. He’s dedicated his life’s work to Community Service and that’s what he’ll focus his leadership on: Community and Service.
Currently, Logan works for Harvesters—The Community Food Network as the Food and Fund Drive Engagement Manager. His goals in that role include raising millions of dollars and collecting millions of pounds of food to feed hungry people today while working to end hunger tomorrow.
Previously, Logan served as a Press Intern for the Obama White House Office of Communications and as an intern for Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II. Logan has received national journalism honors from the Hearst Journalism Awards Program and the National Scholastic Press Association.
Community service started early for Logan. Before graduating high school, he served seven years in the Youth Volunteer Corps, including two terms as chair of YVC’s Youth Advisory Board. Currently, Logan serves on YVC’s Alumni Advisory Board. He also serves on the board of his church at Shawnee Mission UU Church and is a graduate of the Johnson County Citizens Academy.
Community service runs deep in Logan’s family. His grandmother, Marilyn, was a long-time volunteer for the Johnson County Library. Logan’s family first came to Johnson County in 1953 when his Grandpa Jim was stationed at the Olathe Naval Air Station.
Logan attended and graduated from Shawnee Mission schools before earning dual degrees from the University of Southern California in Broadcast Journalism and History.
