LC State’s Alexander Named to Inaugural College Sports Communicators 30 Under 30 Class

Greenwood, Ind. – Lewis-Clark State Sports Information Director Alisha Alexander was announced as a member of the inaugural College Sports Communicators (formerly CoSIDA) 30 Under 30 class, released by CSC on Wednesday. Alexander is one of four NAIA representatives in the class.
 
The recognition honors up-and-coming strategic, creative and digital athletics communications professionals throughout the CSC membership. Candidates are considered for selection based on achievement in one or more areas such as professional success, impact on their athletic department and service to CSC.
 
“I’m beyond blown away to be receiving this award. Being recognized by my peers is something special because they understand what goes into the day-to-day, and knowing I was one of 30 selected from across all divisions is extremely validating. Being young and a female in this industry has not been easy, but I have been blessed with incredible mentors and coworkers to help guide me along the way.
 
“I’d like to thank my coworkers here at LC State, my interns and my colleagues in the Cascade Conference, especially Sammi Wellman who has been a mentor since my intern days. Special thanks to my family, especially my husband for supporting me through the wild weekends that seem to never end. I really love my job, and that is because of the student-athletes that make sports information such a special field. They are the reason I do my job, so thank you to them for making LC State a special place to call home.”
 
Alexander is in her fifth year as the Sports Information Director at LC. She is responsible for the coverage of all 12 teams at LC State and is the media director for the Avista NAIA World Series. In 2022, she was elected to the NAIA-SIDA Executive Board as an At-Large member and oversees the Continuing Education committee. She became the first woman to be voted the Cascade Conference Sports Information Director of the Year for her work in 2020-21, and was also named the NAIA finalist for the AVCA Grant Burger Media award.
 
Of more than 100 nominations submitted, this year’s class includes 17 members from four different levels of NCAA Division I, four Division II members, three Division III members, four NAIA members and two from Canadian institutions. The average age is 26.9 years old.
