A familiar face returns to Alumni Relations

The new director of New Mexico State University’s Alumni Relations Office is no stranger to the department.

Mallory Driggers, who took on her new role in January after earning her doctorate in educational leadership from NMSU in December 2016, previously served as associate director of the office before taking a role in 2015 as assistant manager of Barnes & Noble at NMSU.

Driggers has a master’s in educational leadership from the University of Texas at El Paso and a bachelor’s in journalism and public relations from Baylor University.

“I’ve been part of New Mexico State University for more than five years as a student, a staff member and an affiliate employee,” Driggers says. “I have listened to alumni talk about their Aggie pride and lifelong connection to NMSU. When I walked across the stage in December and became an Aggie myself, I truly understood the pride and connection to this top-tier institution that I had only heard about before.”

In her role as director of Alumni Relations, Driggers says she hopes to encourage proud Aggies everywhere to connect with NMSU through volunteering as an alumni leader, attending NMSU Alumni Association events and supporting the NMSU Foundation.
