College of Education alumnus selected as Thirty Under 30 recipient

Joseph Mahshie

Joseph Mahshie has been selected as a Thirty Under 30 recipient by the FSU Alumni Association, which recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of Florida State’s young alumni.

Each year, the FSU Alumni Association selects thirty alumni less than thirty years of age who show exceptional achievement and significant contributions to his or her profession, community/society or the university. These recipients exemplify outstanding professional and personal development either through traditional channels or innovative approaches.

In 2008, Mahshie graduated with his B.S. in Recreation Services Administration. Throughout his time at FSU, he was heavily involved with the university. He became the first freshman to sit on the Homecoming Executive Committee, leading to his role as deputy assistant homecoming director. Mahshie served as assistant event manager for the 2005 Dance Marathon and was also involved with Seminole Student Boosters, Student Government and Seminole Productions throughout his undergraduate career.

In 2007, Mahshie and fellow alumnus, Joe O’Shea, inspired the TRUE Seminole campaign, which aimed to unite the student body through the shared values and ideals of “Tradition, Respect, Unity and Excellence” as fundamental to being a Florida State Seminole. At the time of the campaign’s creation, Mahshie served as president of the Seminole Student Boosters. A major component of this program included the creation of an official game-day t-shirt each year, the “TRUE Pride Tee,” which is still being produced today.

Following graduation, Mahshie served as assistant director of Alumni Programs at the FSU Alumni Association where he developed new alumni and student programs such as the President’s Backyard BBQ. He then became associate marketing manager for Student Programs at McGraw-Hill Higher Education. Following this role, he moved to New York where he was employed as an events manager for Time Square.

Mahshie currently lives in Washington, D.C. and serves as a staffer at the Visitors Office in the White House.
