Student Government Senators

Ashley Berger


Currently involved with the following on campus:  Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and Student Nurse Association. 

I live with my mom, sister, as well as my grandparents.  I enjoy helping others and laughing until my stomach hurts.  I work at a popcorn shop while working toward my dream of becoming a Registered Nurse.

I would like to give back to the community as a student as much as I’m able to do so.

My goal as a Senator is to be a strong advocate for students of Stark State College and create more opportunities for student involvement.


Alyssa Goodwin

I am an active member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

I work at S.U.P.E.R. Learning Center – a school for children with special needs.  My family owns the learning center and I hope to be a teacher there someday.

I am a member of Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, American Society of Mechanical Engineering and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

Currently, I am an intern at LG Fuel Cell Systems, Inc., right here on campus next to the ATC building.  This is my last semester for my Associate’s in Mechanical Engineering Technology.  However, I plan on continuing taking as many courses at Stark State to transfer those credits to the University of Akron for my Bachelor’s degree.

I would like to implement my college experience, along with my internship experience, to serve as an effective medium to heighten awareness about extra-curricular activities, specifically career resources and opportunities within and around the college.

During my three years as a non-traditional student at Stark State College, it has been a recurring theme among other students that they are unaware of available resources.  I would like to focus on innovative ways to get students involved with career development activities.

Also helping in the co-founding of the group, and was able to be a part of the process of our club receiving National Charter.

My goal as Student Government Senator, is to help fellow students, and their successful completion of their degrees. Encouraging students to take part in campus and club activities. It is my plan to help connect students with resources and support during their journey in a non-traditional campus setting.
