|Sisters and Brothers of Tau Beta Sigma,|
At the 2021 Southwest District Convention, Tau Beta Sigma Counselor Ashlyn Simmons announced that she would be stepping down from her position after the 2021 National Convention. The National Council would like to thank Ashlyn for her service as Southwest District Counselor for the past three years. We are grateful for her service and wish her the best as she begins a new phase in her career and life.
Further, as we head into the 2021-2022 academic year, several of our Counselors are entering their final year of service with us: Allison Leemann, Kellie Leitz, Zack Rebarchek, Carrie Webster, and Kathy Webster. We want to take a moment to thank each of them, and we look forward to having one more year of their guidance and leadership in Tau Beta Sigma.
Therefore, the National Council is currently accepting applications for DISTRICT COUNSELORS in ALL GEOGRAPHIC AREAS with immediate need in the SOUTHWEST DISTRICT and will give strong consideration to applicants in the MIDWEST, NORTHEAST, and NORTH CENTRAL DISTRICTS so as to provide appropriate transition time in those districts with Counselors who are terming out of their positions next spring.
