Hannah Spangler

Archer Hall Director

Hannah Spangler, from Middlesboro, KY, has been director of Moss Hall since August 2013. She has the distinction of having served as a resident assistant or Senior RA in all of the other women’s residence halls (Archer, Asher, Gillespie, and Harth). Hannah is currently a senior at the University of the Cumberlands and will graduate with majors in Math and Physics Education.

Hannah has participated in the Campus Activity Board, the Student Government Association, House Council, and in various academic honor societies.

One of Hannah’s favorite memories of UC is from her junior year when she and a fellow RA were working in the office on a weekend. They were laughing and talking when her friend leaned over too far on the desk and fell out of the chair. She not only fell out of the chair but also turned the chair over on top of herself. She sat in the floor for about 5 minutes trying to get the chair off of her and get up, and they laughed for the rest of the night.

Although Moss Hall is small, Hannah says, “We are like a family, everyone knows everyone. It is a community of friends and feels like home.”
