Tisa Mason wins national award for service to professional associations

Dr. Tisa Mason, vice president for student affairs at Fort Hays State University, was presented earlier this month with the Robert A. Shaffer Award from the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors (AFA).

The award recognizes Mason for her involvement with several professional associations. She serves on the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values board and is also a member of Sigma Kappa Sorority. She served as the Sigma Kappa Foundation executive director from 1994 to 2004.

Mason was nominated by Angela Guillory, who worked with Mason on the Sigma Kappa Foundation. Guillory, assistant dean of students and director of Greek Life at Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, said Mason “has gone above the call of duty to serve” and “brings others together because she values the perspective each person brings to the table.” Guillory was one of many who recommended Mason.

“You can measure her work not only by what she did and does in her day-to-day life over the last 25 years but the time she gives over and above her professional career to serve the larger fraternity/sorority community,” said Guillory.

Mason has also been active in LeaderShape Institute Inc., the American Society of Executives and the Fraternity Executives Association.

The award was presented at the AFA annual meeting in Orlando, Fla.
