Director of Growth Alex Hart is the recipient of West Virginia University’s 2021 Micaela A. Isler Headquarters Partner of the Year Award. This award is presented to a recipient who works for an international fraternity or sorority and has exhibited true partnership and a commitment to West Virginia University’s (WVU) institutional mission of innovation and service.
“Since Alex joined us in the Spring 2021 semester he has shown an intentional and authentic passion for the fraternity and sorority experience,” shared Dr. Matthew Richardson, Director of the Center for Fraternal Values and Leadership at WVU. “He has volunteered his time to facilitate a session in our Nolan M. Burch Greek Leadership Academy as well as coached and mentored leadership on the IFC on effective recruiting techniques. He has lived his Sigma Tau Gamma values in an obvious way and was a true ambassador for Sigma Alpha Mu.”
Alex led a successful growth and expansion effort on campus at West Virginia University this semester. There are currently 17 members of the new group who will be reinstalled as a provisional chapter on April 8th at 8p ET. Alex reflected on this recognition, “When we do expansion work, it is a relationship. In such an unpredictable year, those relationships have proven to be even more important.”
Executive Director Andy Huston added, “We join WVU in celebrating Alex. Each expansion effort is a collaborative process between the international fraternity, university administration, and campus community. Alex has worked to ensure our process embodies ‘love for and loyalty to Alma Mater and its ideals’ as espoused in our Creed. I am grateful to WVU’s Center of Fraternal Values and Leadership for their partnership and recognition of Alex.”
The Sigma Alpha Mu Endowment Fund underwrites expansion efforts to advance the fraternity’s strategic priority of growth. Learn more about our growth initiatives at sam.org/expansion.

Sigma Alpha Mu’s vision is to be the first choice of collegians seeking a forward-thinking, inclusive fraternity which enhances the university experience and prepares the fraternity member for a fulfilling life. With its International Headquarters located in Indianapolis, IN, the fraternity currently has 48 collegiate chapters and over 59,000 living alumni.
