Chris Wells ascends to NAIA-SIDA President
Lindsey Wilson College Sports Information Director Chris Wells ascended to the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics-Sports Information Director Association (NAIA-SIDA) presidency recently at the NAIA-SIDA Convention in Orlando, Florida.
Wells will serve the final year of outgoing NAIA-SIDA President Aaron Sagraves, who left the position after becoming athletics director at Cornerstone (Mich.). Wells will then serve his scheduled three-year term beginning in the 2020-21 academic year.
"I'm excited to serve my profession in this role," Wells said. "The NAIA has some of the best, hardest-working sports communication professionals in the country and it is a great honor serving as one of its voices on the national level."
Wells has served on the NAIA-SIDA Board of Directors since 2014-15 when he was elected to an at-large position. After two years as an at-large representation, Wells was elected as the first NAIA-SIDA Second Vice President -- a position created in 2016-17.
One year later, Wells was elected NAIA-SIDA First Vice President to put him on the path to serving as the president.
Wells becomes the 31st NAIA-SIDA President and the first from Lindsey Wilson. He will preside over the Board while also serving as the NAIA-SIDA representative on the NAIA National Administrative Council and attend the meetings of the NAIA Council of Presidents.
Southeastern's (Fla.) Donnie Smith was elected at NAIA-SIDA First Vice President while Westmont's (Calif.) Ron Smith was elected at NAIA-SIDA Second Vice President. Columbia's (Mo.) Cindy Potter remains in her role as NAIA-SIDA Past President.
Calumet College of St. Joseph's (Ind.) Wendy Reid (treasurer), Cumberlands' (Ky.) Tommy Chasanoff (at-large), Park's (Mo.) Tyler Price (at-large), Campbellsville's (Ky.) Jordan Alves (at-large), and Madonna's (Mich.) Zach Shore (at-large) complete the Board.
During the convention, Lindsey Wilson sports information picked up six top-10 finishes in the 2018-19 NAIA-SIDA Publication and Media Contests. The Blue Raider SID office -- which includes Wells, Chris Coombs, Clayton Barefield, and Ben Riegger -- picked up top-10 finishes in game notes, infographics, and feature video.
