Past Chair's Award

Kristine Kassel, a true Sun Devil and an exemplary alumna, was chair of the ASU Alumni Board of Directors during fiscal year 2021–22, an exciting, growth-filled year for the ASU Alumni Association. Kassel’s strong direction helped enhance the services offered to all alumni. 

During her tenure, the Alumni Association benefited from Kassel’s expertise and enthusiasm, her role as representative of the Alumni Association and status as a multi-year Sun Devil 100 recipient. Kassel’s organizational acumen and strong advocacy helped the Alumni Association build a stronger ASU community and advance the university.

While chair, Kassel made the ASU Alumni Association scholarship programs a priority, growing the number of students through the Medallion Scholarship program. The ASU Alumni Chapter organization also expanded under her leadership, as did programming in virtual, hybrid and in-person formats.
