A note from Porter S. Garner III '79 introducing Nic Taunton '07 as vice president of development for The Association of Former Students:
As The Association of Former Students works to reach our goal of obtaining 100,000 annual donors by the conclusion of the Lead By Example campaign in 2020, we are pleased to announce a reorganization of our internal reporting structure, creating a division exclusively dedicated to fundraising on behalf of The Association of Former Students. Leading this division will be Nic Taunton ’07, who was promoted from director of development to vice president of development on March 1.
In his new role, Nic will continue to lead The Association’s endowed giving programs such as the Endowed Century Club and Endowed Aggie Ring Scholarship Program, and will also lead our Annual Giving team, which raises the Annual Fund on behalf of The Association and Texas A&M.
Prior to joining The Association team in August of 2014, Nic practiced commercial litigation as an associate with Norton Rose Fulbright in Dallas. He graduated from Texas A&M with a BBA in Finance in December of 2007, where he served as Student Body President and was a recipient of the Brown Foundation-Earl Rudder Memorial Outstanding Student Award. Prior to earning his law degree from the University of Texas School of Law, he volunteered as a consultant for USAID in Rwanda. Nic and his wife, Brittany ’08, have two daughters and live in College Station.
We are pleased to welcome Nic to The Association’s management team and look forward working alongside him as we grow The Association’s donor base and continue our 137 year history of providing meaningful service and support to Texas A&M.
