Aaron Schock grew up on a farm where he and his siblings sold strawberries from their strawberry patch. At age fifteen, Schock started working in a gravel pit and earned up to $18,000 per year in his teens. He bought his first piece of real estate on his eighteenth birthday. After completing a degree in Finance in only two years at Bradley University, Schock and a partner started a business together.
At age 19, Schock decided to run for school board because he wanted to reform some of the high school's policies. Though more than enough people signed his petition to be placed on the ballot, Schock was thrown off the ballot because some people wrote in ditto marks for part of their addresses. After improvising as a write-in candidate, Schock defeated the school board president by garnering 60% of the vote. Read More...
