EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Alex Kelley

Alex Kelley is a junior at Truman State University as a Political Science Major, a Business Administration Minor, and a German Minor. He also is the current Brotherhood and Service Coordinator of Delta Phi Alpha. He is the second youngest child of five, and works for his parents during the summer and whenever he is home throughout the semester at their restaurant. His interests, other than advancing the conservative agenda, would be sketching in his free time and talking about anything related to technology. Alex plans to attend graduate school to earn his Masters in Business Administration and to pursue a career in corporate business in Silicon Valley.

 

OUTREACH COORDINATOR

Isaac Hampton

Isaac Hampton is a sophomore Business Administration and Economics double major at Truman State University. As Outreach Coordinator for the Truman State College Republicans, he is in charge of “Across the Aisle”, Truman’s radio station KTRM 88.7. Across the Aisle is a political talk show where students from all across the political spectrum discuss the weekly news; it airs on Saturdays from 5pm-6pm. When Isaac is not spreading his “hateful”, “vitriolic” message of free markets, limited government, and conservatism on the airwaves or at Truman State, you will find him participating and enjoying a variety of activities. He is a man that will not have his entire persona boiled down to a measly paragraph, for his story spans volumes.
