Frank LaRose has dedicated his life to service and helping others. As an Eagle Scout, he learned the value of working hard and leading by example. After high school, Frank enlisted in the Army. He served for ten years in assignments around the globe including Kosovo and Iraq. Frank volunteered for some of the toughest training the US Military offers, ultimately serving in the U.S. Special Forces as a Green Beret. Recognized for his leadership by his commanders, he rose to the rank of Sergeant First Class. He earned a Bronze Star for his service in Iraq as well as numerous other commendations and honors throughout his decade in uniform.
Following his graduation from The Ohio State University Frank returned with his wife Lauren, to his hometown of Copley where the two started a family. They now have three daughters, Hadley, Ellie and Lainey.
During his time in the military, Frank learned how to build on the strengths of those around him to achieve difficult tasks. He has applied those same principles to his work in Columbus on behalf of the people of Summit, Wayne and Stark Counties.
Frank continues to serve his community locally as Junior Vice Commander of the Fairlawn VFW and as a member of the executive board of the Great Trail Council, Boy Scouts of America.
