Emma Douglas, President

Emma is a sophomore here at Allen. She has been playing the alto saxophone since the fifth grade. She is from Iola (KS) where she grew up with her four siblings (Benny, Brynna, Paul and Jenna),  and nephew Jordan who is 6. Emma also graduated from Iola high school. Emma works at Casey's General Store, here in town, and she believes "it's an OK job for the time being." She plans on going into designing pastries, such as wedding and birthday cakes. After graduating from Allen, Emma plans to transfer to St. Louis where she'll go to school at the Le Cordon Blue, which is five hours away from her home town. She plans to make it there even though it will be a new experience for her. "It will be crazy and scary but it will also be super fun!"


Dallas Wright, Vice President

Dallas Wright is finishing up his second year here at Allen. He is on music scholarship has been playing trumpet for ten years. Dallas performs in both of the band ensembles here at Allen, including the concert band and jazz/pep band. While here, Dallas's goal is to obtain the skills to be considered a college level and professional trumpet player. After finishing up here at Allen, Dallas plans to attend KU to major in pre-medicine to become a doctor. "I have yet to decide what kind of doctor I would like to be." Dallas is also planning on being a part of the army ROTC program at KU. He is an enlisted soldier in the Kansas Army National Guard and is also aspiring to become an officer. Allen was his first stepping stone in accomplishing these goals and Dallas is proud to be an Allen Red Devil.

Victoria Corban, Treasurer

Victoria is studying pre-nursing here at Allen and hopes to graduate next year with her Associate's Degree in Pre-Nursing. She enjoys participating in both choir and fundraising activities. Her hobbies are creative writing, beaded jewelry, and anime. Victoria believes that the goal of this committee is "to bring our creative minds together to form a stronger and more unified music department."


Kevin Carpenter, Guardian of the Door

Kevin is a devote college student who is dedicated to the arts. This is Kevin's first year here at Allen. He is known by most as "Kevin, that crazy kid who is possibly insane," as well as "Masky" to a select few. Kevin plays percussion in the Allen concert band and jazz band and he would like to mention that he "has little to no singing talent." However, you can see Kevin's school spirit at many of our home basketball games. When it comes to video games, he is also an avid gamer and a force to be reckoned with. Kevin is also very skilled at cooking TV dinners and that in the great words of Kevin Carpenter, "That is all I have to say about that."
