Advancement welcomes new associate

Devin Girod has joined Texas A&M University-Commerce as the new associate director of development for the College of Humanities, Social Sciences and Arts (CHSSA). Hailing from Columbia, Louisiana, Girod earned his B.A. in Mass Communication and his M.A. in Communication at the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

Paying his bills by playing the drums in a band, he started college to study construction and management when he realized he didn’t care much for concrete. He then switched majors to work in communications and public relations.

Girod said he loves working in higher education, and he believes that it is the way of tomorrow. He loves being at A&M-Commerce and looks forward to continuing his work with the alumni and the departments in the college.
