Undergraduate Student Government

Ally Phibbs

I am a junior majoring in Business Management and minoring in Human Resource Management. This will be my second year as a part of the Undergraduate Student Government. I am currently an HR intern at AVI Foodsystems and a student employee on campus. I love playing games with friends, exploring new coffee shops, and spending time with my puppy in my spare time. After college, I plan to be a Human Resource Manager. I am so excited about this school year and being a part of such a great group again! I look forward to creating a fun and exciting on-campus experience at Kent State Trumbull. As always, go flashes!



Tanner Noble

I am currently a senior in psychology. I want to one-day counsel children or young adults. I can give back to the community through counseling and helping those in need. My hobbies include movies, video games, and card games. Also, I enjoy various sports, such as golf, bowling, and football. This year, I'm hoping to continue and build on the community at Kent Trumbull. Go Flashes!

Nadia Currence

Hello everyone!! My name is Nadia, and I am currently enrolled in the Kent State College of Nursing Program. Something about me is I work in the Kent Trumbull bookstore and that I am a volunteer firefighter/EMT. I love spending time with my family and going on spontaneous adventures. Also, I have the cutest little puppy, and her name is Rosebud Marie!! Hope to see you around campus this fall!! GO FLASHES!!

Sarah McCulley

I am currently a sophomore pursuing my bachelor's degree in nursing, and I also enjoy participating in on-campus events, including the student focus group. I am a nontraditional student who graduated from Mathews High School in 2012. The two driving forces for pursuing my higher education, specifically nursing, were my passion for helping others during previous employment and the harsh and saddening reality brought on by the pandemic. Apart from my studies, I enjoy collecting vinyl and crystals, thrifting, and making as many memories as I can with my children. After my four years with Kent State, I plan on finding a local nursing position where I can work on my master's degree. I look forward to fulfilling my duties as treasurer along with supporting my fellow flashes and uniting student organizations. As Dolly Parton would say, "You'll never do a whole lot unless you're brave enough to try."



Jasmine Williams

I am Jasmine Williams attending to achieve a degree in Business Management and Entrepreneurship. I am a returning student and single mother to a 12-year-old son. My hobbies are singing, watching movies, and spending time with my son. I chose to attend Kent Trumbull because during the first year of this pandemic, while the kids were learning remotely, my son challenged me to go back to school, get my degree and follow my dreams with him. So I chose Kent Trumbull to be close to him and show him to fight for what you want in life. I wanted to be a part of the USG because I can meet new people and also be a part of helping a lot of people succeed in their college life. Interesting fact: I am a Licensed Cosmetologist, and when I graduate with my degree in Business, I want to have my own salon. 



Blake Spurlock - Homecoming Committee Chair

I am a sophomore pursuing a degree in Nursing with a minor degree in psychology. After graduating, I plan to use my degree to become a traveling nurse and obtain my master’s to become an Emergency Medicine Nurse Practitioner. I am currently employed as a server for the Trumbull Country Club and also work as a tour guide for Kent Trumbull. In my spare time, I enjoy running and am a part of the Kent Trumbull Cross Country and Track team, with a particular focus on the steeplechase. I love playing piano and have recently been selected as my church’s choir director. I hope as a part of USG, I will be able to enhance our community through the involvement of the students of Kent State University at Trumbull. Go Flashes!! 


Alexis Parthemer

I am a sophomore going into the nursing program and minoring in psych. I currently work as an employee of Mercy Health as a lab assistant. During my free time, I enjoy traveling, watching tv, playing with my animals, and spending time with my family. After college, I hope to work as a registered nurse, as well as continue my education to be a nurse practitioner. While holding a place as a chair on the USG, I hope to bring students together and help build one community.
