Alexandra González graduated in 2015 from Texas A&M University with a degree in agricultural economics.

A highly involved student leader, she served as chairman of Traditions Council and as president of the Society for Collegiate Leadership and Achievement, was co-founder of the Aggie Network Student Ambassadors, and more. Alexandra received the Buck Weirus Spirit Award and was student speaker for her commencement ceremony. Her interest in the nonprofit sector was elicited from her position as student assistant to the president and CEO and Executive Staff at The Association of Former Students. There she reinforced her passion for public service through fundraising for Texas A&M and the worldwide Aggie Network and led to her pursuit of a Master’s at The Bush School. Currently, she works as a Development Specialist at The Association of Former Students, raising funds for capital and major gifts, including the Endowed Century Club and Endowed Aggie Ring Scholarships. Outside of school and the workplace, Ale enjoys playing sports such golf and basketball, playing fetch with her black lab named “Rudder,” and getting involved at her church, St. Mary’s Catholic Center.
