Dean Mark Welsh has announced the appointment of Alexandra “Ale” González Rainey as Director of Development for the Texas A&M University Bush School of Government and Public Service.

Rainey is a 2018 graduate of the Bush School, earning her master’s degree in nonprofit management in the Department of Public Service and Administration. While a student, she served as Chief Ambassador of the Bush School Ambassadors Council. She also earned a bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics from Texas A&M University in 2015 and held numerous student-leader positions throughout her undergraduate years.

Rainey has worked for the Association of Former Students since 2013, beginning as a student assistant to the Association’s President and CEO and other members of the executive staff. Other positions include serving as development assistant for the Vice President of Marketing and Programs and most recently as a development specialist fundraising for major gifts through the Association. She is also currently president of the Brazos County A&M Club.

“The opportunity to serve the Bush School as Director of Development is a tremendous honor,” Rainey said. “As a graduate of the Bush School Master of Public Service and Administration degree program, I am thrilled to put into practice what I learned as a student and to pay it forward by fundraising for future generations of Bush School Aggies and our school.”

“Ale is a talented and experienced fundraising professional, a great Aggie, and a wonderful human being.  I am delighted that she has chosen to return to the Bush School. I look forward to working with her to increase support for our academic and research efforts,” Welsh said.
