By: Norman Martin
Tracee Murph, coordinator of alumni relations with Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, has been re-appointed to a one-year term on the National Agricultural Alumni and Development Association's Board of Directors, officials announced today (July 26).
Murph will again serve as the Publications & Projects Committee Chair and be responsible for recognizing outstanding publication and project development by NAADA member institutions and organizations by soliciting, reviewing, and facilitating the judging process for all publication and project submissions.
“The P&P competition is a great way for us to celebrate the work we do at each of our institutions,” Murph said. “I am very excited to continue my time on the board and to serve NAADA in this way.”
A NAADA member since 2011, Murph joined the organization's Publications and Projects Committee in 2012. She also served on NAADA's Education Committee and Re-branding Ad Hoc Committee. Murph's term of service began on June 17 with that of more than 20 other Board Members from across the United States following NAADA's 46th Annual Conference.
Since becoming a member institution in the 1990s, Texas Tech's CASNR has won several NAADA Publications and Projects awards, including honors for the college's Landmarks and The Agriculturalist magazines. CASNR hosted the organization's annual conference in 2011.
Murph joined CASNR in 2005 as a student, and went on to become a senior business assistant in CASNR's Development and Alumni Relations Office in 2010 and was named coordinator of alumni relations in 2011. She received a bachelor's degree in agricultural communications with a minor in animal science from Texas Tech. In addition, she was awarded a certificate in equine science.
“I am excited to welcome Tracee back to our Board of Directors,” said NAADA President Pat Whittington. “I look forward to partnering with our Board members as they include a diverse representation of individuals from all over the country.”
This diversity is vital to the organization, since it enhances mission-critical solutions to better serve NAADA and its universities as the organization provides education, support and recognition for professionals and volunteers dedicated to expanding resources for advancing agriculture and related disciplines through land-grant and other colleges of agricultural sciences and partner programs, he said.
NAADA provides education and support for professionals, volunteers and student leaders who are dedicated to serving land-grant colleges of agricultural sciences and related programs. The network of members includes institutions from all across the United States.
