Meet the 2019-2020 Student Government Eboard
Hello fellow Bulldogs!
This year we really want to become more well known and involved on campus. If you at any time have questions for us, you are more than welcome to contact us. We are here to give a voice to the student body and we would love to hear from you.
Hi, I'm Allyson Faulkner and I am the current FSUSGA President. I am a sophomore in the Political Science program here at Ferris State. I am currently involved on campus through the Panhellenic Council as President, the Ferris Forensics team as the VP, the Intercollegiate track team, Student Alumni Gold Club treasurer, Alpha Sigma Tau, and I am a part of the Honors Program here at Ferris.
I joined Student Government because I believe that education is the key to real fundamental change, and a responsive, effective government, even at the collegiate level, can help achieve a change in the culture and climate of our school. I am excited to see what we can accomplish together.
Vice President Gaither
My name is Mariah Gaither and I am a fourth year Biology Education student. My hometown is a small village in Northern Michigan called Kingsley. I joined Student Government because I am very passionate about involvement and change in a community. I try to live by the idea that if you believe in something there is no reason you can't be the person that voices their opinion. On campus, I am involved in multiple RSOs including Students for Sensible Drug Policy, Aspiring Educations of the MEA, LEAD by Design Program Advisory Board and mentor, and am the Housing Coordinator for the B1G Event committee. Off campus, I am in the Michigan Science Teachers Association and am an active mentor for the Grand Traverse 4-H program. A fun fact about me is that I love photography, being out in nature, and my cat, Rizzo!
Administrative Assistant Kremhelmer
My name is Tara Kremhelmer, and I am a Junior here at Ferris State University. My major is Pre-Medicine and it is my dream to one day become a neurologist. I originally joined Student Government to serve as a representative for my sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha, but have continued to stay a member to be more involved in our campus community. Since joining I have held positions as a representative, committee head for Campus Affairs, senator for the College of Arts & Sciences, and now couldn’t be more excited to serve as our Administrative Assistant. Outside of the Student Government Association I am also Zeta Tau Alpha’s current Vice President.
My name is Adam Michalski and I am a junior at Ferris State. My hometown is in the thumb of the state in a little town called Deford. My major is Pre-Dentistry and my dream since I was 12 has been to become a General Dentist. I love to golf so when I’m not doing things for school or work, you’ll find me on the golf course. I joined Student Government because I wanted to make a difference on campus and be the leader people look up to. Outside of Student Government, I am also in the Pre-Dentistry Club and the First-Generation Club.
Hello all! My name is Miranda Blaine, and I'm majoring in pharmacy. This is my fifth and last year at the Big Rapids campus, and I'm sad to leave at the end of next spring semester. I have been an active member of Student Government since Fall of 2017, and I am excited to be the Parliamentarian of this wonderful organization.
Director of Finance Herioux
My name is Dean Herioux and I’m a junior in the Political Science program at Ferris State. I’m an experienced member of our Finance Division and I’ll be serving as your Finance Director 2019-2020 academic year. I’m originally from the Upper Peninsula. I’m involved in various RSO’s and I’m committed to running Finance Division as well as possible. I’m excited to work with all the RSOs this upcoming year and can’t wait to see what ideas for events you all have in store! Go Bulldogs!

Director of Philanthropy Byrnes
Hello all! I am the Director of Philanthropy! I am a Hospitality Management major here at Ferris State! On campus I am not only on Student Government and Panhellenic, but am also in Phi Sigma Sigma and HMSA. I joined because I wanted to be more involved on campus and to make more connections while also being a connection myself for on and off campus outlets. My fun facts are that I know American Sign Language and that I still have baby teeth!
Director of Internal Assessment Kubesh
Hello, I am Sophie Kubesh and I'm the current Director of Internal Assessment for the Student Government Association (SGA). I am a sophomore in the Pre-Pharmacy program at Ferris State. I'm from Interlochen, Michigan, a small town outside of Traverse City. I joined SGA, originally, to represent my sorority, Phi Sigma Sigma, but came to realize that I wanted to make a difference on campus and in the community through SGA.
On campus, I'm also involved in Phi Sigma Sigma where I am the Tribune (secretary), and am in the Honors program. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and making espresso drinks.
