LC-State’s Alisha Alexander Elected to NAIA-SIDA Board of Directors

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Lewis-Clark State College’s Alisha Alexander has been elected to serve on the NAIA-SIDA Board of Directors, announced Friday.

“I’m extremely honored and humbled to have been both nominated and selected for an important position such as this,” said Alexander. “Thank you to those who support me every day at LC State and in the CCC, and those that voted for me across the country. I can’t wait to get started!”

The Warriors’ Sports Information Director becomes the second-straight Cascade Collegiate Conference representative on the board after CCC Director of Communications Sammi Wellman served two years. Wellman nominated Alexander for the position after her term was up.

Alexander was selected as one of two At-Large representative openings for the NAIA-SIDA board, which serves as the leadership group for all Sports Information Directors in the NAIA. Alexander will be one of four at-large representatives on the board, serving a two-year term. She will serve as the liaison to one of seven committees related to sports information and will participate in monthly conference calls with fellow board members.

The Southern California native enters her fifth year at LC State in the fall and was named the CCC Sports Information Director of the Year following the 2020-21 season, becoming the first woman to win the award. She was also named the NAIA finalist for the AVCA Grant Burger Media award. Alexander is responsible for the coverage of all 12 teams at LC State and is the media director for the Avista NAIA World Series.

Alexander graduated from Concordia University, Irvine in December of 2016 and became a graduate assistant in Sports Information for the Eagles. While at CUI, she also interned for the PacWest Conference, an NCAA DII conference located in Orange County, Calif., as well as at the 2016 Ryder Cup and 2017 Senior PGA Championship. She obtained her master’s degree in Coaching and Athletics Administration from Concordia in November of 2018.
