Join us in bidding Rebecca Easterling farewell as we commend her on four-and-a-half years of excellence in collegiate services and chapter development.

Rebecca joined Theta Chi’s staff as Director of Health and Safety in August 2019 and was promoted to Sr. Director of Chapter Development in June 2021. In her role, she measured chapter success, provided opportunities for continued chapter improvement, and managed a team of Assistant Directors of Chapter Development.

An alumna of Eastern Kentucky University and a member of Alpha Omicron Pi, Rebecca had served as a Educational Leadership Consultant and as Senior Assistant Director of Collegiate Experience for her organization’s headquarters prior to coming to Theta Chi. Initially, Rebecca volunteered as a recruitment coach on the faculty for the Fraternity’s Amplify Theta Chi training program. Then-Director of Training and Development Zack Brown (Eta Beta/Eastern Kentucky 2014) inspired Rebecca to make the shift.

“Zack and I have been good friends since college, and he was that the one who got me excited about the opportunity,” Rebecca recalled.

Rebecca’s favorite thing from her time at Theta Chi International Headquarters was all of the Theta Chi brothers, alumni and collegiate, with whom she was able to meet, befriend, and build relationships.

“As much as I loved working for my own organization, working for Theta Chi has given me the opportunity to understand and build relationships within another fraternal organization and love it just as much,” Rebecca shared.

Some of Rebecca’s favorite chapters to work with and travel to have been Beta Phi/Nevada, Delta Psi/Kansas, Epsilon Kappa/Idaho, Eta Gamma/Morehead, and Kappa Zeta/Arkansas.

Upon her promotion to Sr. Director of Chapter Development in 2021, Rebecca was given the responsibility of building the Assistant Director of Chapter Development program, and she attributes a lot of the personal and professional growth she experienced working at Theta Chi from receiving the assignment.

“Creating something that was equally as dynamic and new wasn’t easy, but it gave me the biggest opportunity I’ve had so far in my career for creative thinking and problem-solving, and it tremendously added to my own professional experience.”

Rebecca accepted a new, full-time position as a project coordinator for Lenex Steel, a steel fabrication company in Carmel, IN.

Thank you for your four-and-a-half years of service to Theta Chi Fraternity, Rebecca! We wish you the best in your newest endeavor.
