Kelly Tebay, Candidate for MSU Board of Trustees
Kelly Charron Tebay is a passionate Michigan State alumnus who is not far removed from her own time on campus. In 2008, Kelly graduated from MSU with a BA in International Relations and a Muslim Studies Specialization. In 2011, she earned her MS in Law Enforcement Intelligence and Analysis with Certificates in Homeland Security and Critical Thinking.
She feels the pain that students and alumni are facing today, but also shares the complete frustration with the university’s handling of its cultural problems. As a survivor of sexual assault that she experienced at MSU, she personally understands this pain that so many students have gone through.
She has 10 years of professional finance experience, having served Congressman Sandy Levin, the Michigan Democratic Party and a host of state and federal candidates in varying capacities. She currently connects private sector organizations with those in-need across Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties at the United Way for Southeastern Michigan. Every day, she helps those who don’t have opportunity gain access to it, and she sees how hard life is when one doesn’t have economic privilege or education. She spends a great deal of time listening to the community and addressing needs while connecting them with those that have opportunity to provide it.
