Alpha Sigma Tau Announces Staffing Changes

As a new academic year begins, Alpha Sigma Tau would like to introduce an addition to the Headquarters Staff. A full Headquarters Staff listing can always be found online here.

Morgan Shiflett rejoins Headquarters Staff as Director of Chapter Services

Alpha Sigma Tau is excited to welcome Morgan Shiflett (Alpha Lambda 2010/Radford) back to staff as Director of Chapter Services. After graduating from Radford University with a B.S. in political science and government, Morgan served Alpha Sigma Tau as an Educational Consultant for the 2013-2014 academic year. In this role, she coordinated the re-establishment of the Beta Rho Chapter at Arkansas Tech University and the establishment of the Epsilon Sigma Chapter at Bridgewater State University. 

Following her tenure as Educational Consultant, Morgan earned her master’s degree in student affairs administration in higher education from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. While earning her master’s degree, she served as the Graduate Assistant for the fraternal community for the Office of Student Life.

After earning her master’s degree, Morgan joined the staff of Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority as Membership Development Coordinator and was later promoted to Collegiate Experience Coordinator. During her more than three years on staff, Morgan oversaw collegiate chapter development and discipline procedures, managed crisis management concerns and investigation teams, created and implemented educational programs, led revitalization chapter efforts, coordinated the award processes, and worked with volunteers and collegians alike to achieve organization goals.

In July 2019, Morgan transitioned to a role in fundraising and events by joining the staff of the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter as the Longest Day Manager. In this position, Morgan was responsible for the annual fundraising campaign—recruiting and organizing volunteers, publicizing the event, and raising funds for the organization’s keystone fundraiser.

Morgan begins her role as Director of Chapter Services on Monday, July 13. She will be responsible for the development, management, and oversight of the Sorority’s collegiate chapter operational efforts. Morgan will lead the Educational Consultant program; chapter policy violation investigations; and risk reduction and management efforts. She will also lead the Chapter Services Team to execute organizational goals related to chapter recruitment, health and safety, financial wellness, Chapter Advisory Board development, and other operational areas.

Responsibility Shift

Ashley Smith (Psi 2009/James Madison) will remain responsible for the Sorority’s extension efforts, relationships with licensed vendors, and the protection of Alpha Sigma Tau’s brand identity. Her responsibilities with leading the Sorority’s recruitment strategy will be absorbed by other staff members on the Chapter Services Team, and Ashley will soon be spending more time fundraising for the Alpha Sigma Tau National Foundation.

Staff Departure

Alpha Sigma Tau extends a sincere thank you to Kirsten Newman Heck (Gamma Pi 2001) who departed the Sorority’s staff in June. Kirsten was responsible for the support of alumnae chapters and associations, the Alumnae Initiation program, and the development and implementation of the Sorority’s online communities for alumnae. She also played a key role in creating written and visual content. Kirsten’s responsibilities will be absorbed by other staff members.
