Greetings! I am Jarayon Jackson, the new treasurer for KAHO. I am from Lithonia, Georgia, and I hold a southern belle spirit with special interests in reading, puzzles, eating, dancing, and bringing happiness to old and new friends. After graduating from Spelman College with a B.A. in Economics and a minor in Management Organization, I continued my education at Middle Tennessee State University where I received my M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision with a concentration in Higher Education. Shortly after graduating, I began my Higher Education career in housing working with diverse student populations of all classifications. For four years, I worked as a hall director and area coordinator with additional tasks in student conduct, student activities, orientation, and First Year Experience instruction. As my interest grew in housing, I transitioned to the University of Louisville as the Assistant Director of Summer Operations (ADSO). As the current ADSO, I work with summer and year-round camps, conferences, and short term housing logistics. As treasurer for KAHO, I look forward to not only managing the financial assets and liabilities of this association, but also creating ways of potential fundraising and partnerships. With money and partnerships coming in, the association is bound to have more opportunities to connect, network, and share the educational resources needed throughout the Kentucky region.

Centre College

My name is Brian Daniel and I am excited to serve as the Small School Representative for KAHO.  I received my B.A. in Elementary Education and Community and Justice Studies in 2011 from Guilford College, and earned my M.S.Ed. in Higher Education Administration in 2013 from Old Dominion University.  I am currently a doctoral student in the Higher Education Administration program at the University of West Georgia.  I have worked at small colleges since I began my higher education journey in 2011, which included experiences at: Virginia Wesleyan College in Virginia Beach, VA, Guilford College in Greensboro, NC, and Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA.  I am currently in my third year at Centre College serving as the Director of Residence Life. I have a passion for working at small institutions.  I look forward to connecting Residence Life professionals who work at small schools from around the Commonwealth with one another through this leadership role.  Please don’t ever hesitate to let me know how I can help advocate for our friends who are working at small schools in Kentucky!  While I am not working, I enjoy coaching, playing, and watching basketball as well as keeping up with my two cats!

Secretary – Chase Coleman

University of Louisville

My name is Chase Coleman and I am excited to be your Secretary for KAHO! I am new to the state of Kentucky and I currently work as a Hall Director at the University of Louisville.  Before becoming a Hall Director, I completed my B.A. in Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and my M.Ed. in Counselor Education at Clemson University. While in grad school, I worked closely with faculty to explore toxic masculinity and also completed research working with student veterans to explore the role that dedicated spaces play on sense of belonging. While not working, I enjoy making cold brew, listening to Dungeons & Dragons podcasts, and spending time with my cat, Astro. As your secretary, I have two goals: I want to bring major updates to the KAHO website and I want to find ways to better connect general body members across the state. I look forward to the next two years!
