ASC assisted with this search and the appointment reflects the first full-time athletic director for relatively new athletic programs at LSUA. Jonson has held the position of Senior Associate Athletic Director at Northwestern State University which is located in Natchitoches, Louisiana which is close proximity to Alexandria. Jonson will begin his duties on October 8, 2016.

LSUA has eight intercollegiate sports that compete in the NAIA and the Red River Athletic Conference.

"By using their [ASC's] knowledge to get to our short list of candidates that fit what we sought in an athletic director, we easily spent half the amount of time that is normally required in a search like this.   Additionally, they enhanced the pool of by bringing several qualified candidates to the finalist list.  Showing that they know talent, two of the individuals that they sought out, and applied to our position, were hired by and are current NCAA Division II AD’s.  Our search finished with securing a quality hire.  If our institution ever needed to conduct a search for an athletic director, we would without question use the services of ASC."
