Shippam began his new position on July 1.

A graduate of Georgia Southern University, Shippam majored in sports management and minored in business. He is joining us from the Athletic Foundation at Georgia Southern University.

“I am excited to begin building relationships with and coordinating events involving Gordon’s nearly 13,000 alumni,” said Shippam. “I think my interpersonal and donor relations skills will be an asset to the Institutional Advancement department.”

Shippam plans to live in Griffin which, he says, is halfway between his friends in the Atlanta area and his family in Statesboro. He likes to cook, and he loves football.

As Alumni Affairs Coordinator and Annual Fund Administrator, Shippam is responsible for managing and promoting annual giving programs, including both internal and external campaigns.

“We are excited that Austin will be joining our team. Austin’s past experience in the annual fund, donor relations, sales and event management areas will be essential in helping us achieve our annual fundraising goals with great success,” said Montrese Adger Fuller, vice president for Institutional Advancement.
