University Foundation adds, advances talent
Louisiana Tech University Foundation has expanded its team by welcoming a new team member and two promotions in the new year.
Madison Kaufman will join the University Foundation as Director of Alumni Engagement starting Feb. 7.
Kaufman is a two-time Tech graduate. She earned a bachelor’s degree in Communication with a minor in Sports Marketing in 2019, and master’s degree in Industrial Organizational Psychology in 2020. She brings a wealth of experience in communication and relationship building to her work with alumni engagement.
“We’re thrilled to have Madison join the Division of University Advancement,” said Brooks Hull, Vice President for University Advancement and Chief Executive Officer for the Foundation. “I look forward to seeing her impact as she develops personal connections and virtual engagement opportunities, while highlighting the career moves of our alumni and friends.”
Taylor Cross was recently named Director of Athletic Development and the Louisiana Tech Athletic Club (LTAC). She will complete work on her Master of Business Administration this month; she received her bachelor’s degree in Finance at Louisiana Tech in 2021.
Cross has served as a Development Assistant for athletic advancement since September 2021, where her primary focus was increasing annual fund donations and the number of LTAC donors. She will now serve as the primary fundraiser soliciting new LTAC gifts and assisting with LTAC member needs and benefits.
Lindsey Murry was recently promoted to the position of Director of Annual Giving from Associate Director of Development.
In her new role, Murry will facilitate annual giving fundraising efforts for the University Foundation. She will also assist the campus community in finding support for campus wide projects ranging from Tech Study Abroad to the Honors Program.
Murry also oversees the Lagniappe Ladies grant efforts. The organization is a network of female alumni and friends of Louisiana Tech University who provide funding for projects and programs across all areas of the University.
