Derek Roush is from Lawrence Kansas and fittingly and avid Jayhawks fan. He enjoys meeting new people, developing relationships with them, and drinking beer with them.

He hopes to find a job in Kansas City after graduation and continue to lead CBC in KC and get involved with the vibrant young adult Catholic atmosphere there.
