Shelia Crockett enters her second year as Assistant Athletic Director at Cumberland University focusing her efforts on student eligibility and retention as well as scheduling and monitoring class attendance for the more than 600 student-athletes in the Cumberland athletic department.

Crockett is responsible for managing all aspects of eligibility compliance and academics, including education, monitoring, and enforcing NAIA and Mid-South Conference Rules.

In her first year she spoke at the NAIA National Convention, held virtually due to COVID-19, about Cumberland's Leadership Day.

From 2010-2020, she has served as an Assistant Athletic Director and the Senior Woman Administrator at King. She has served on numerous committees. She is the Chair of the Gender Equity Committee and is a member of the Wellness Strategic Planning Committee.  At the conference level, she is currently a member of the Conference Carolinas Enhancement Committee. 
Prior to moving into the role of Assistant Athletic Director, Crockett started out as the first full-time athletic trainer at King in 2002 where she built the athletic training program from the ground up. She implemented "Return to Learn" and "Return to Play" concussion protocol. She has a LAT and ATC license in the state of Tennessee.

Crockett played basketball at Cumberland in the early 1990s for Coach Mitch Walters. She earned a bachelor's degree in education with an emphasis on sports medicine from CU in 1997 and earned her master's degree in business administration from King in 2005.
