Daniel Kolbe

State College School Board

Daniel will be an important voice for equality as the only out LGBTQ+ person on the State College Area School Board!


Dan Kolbe was born and raised in Philipsburg, PA. He and his husband Doug live in Patton Township with their son Jadon, who attends Park Forest Elementary School. Kolbe works in business development for KCF Technologies in State College. One of his primary inspirations to run for school board is not only a desire to serve the community, but to create more spaces of representation for families like his in our elected bodies. “Being an LGTBQ, multi-racial family living in the Centre region has changed drastically since my childhood years, and this progression gives us a real opportunity to deliver a more diverse perspective to help us continue striving for a more inclusive and equitable school district.”
