The University of Central Oklahoma recently named UCO graduate Lora Malone as the new alumni director for the university’s Alumni Relations Office.
Malone earned both her bachelor’s degree in communications and public relations and her master’s degree in higher education and community service from Central.
A native Oklahoman, Malone brings more than 10 years of alumni relations experience to Central. Her most recent role was as executive director of the University of Texas at Arlington Alumni Association. There she helped increase overall membership and actively engaged the Alumni Association Board in a variety of fundraising and events. Prior to that position, she served for 10 years as the vice president and chief programs officer for the Oklahoma State University Alumni Association.
Malone is a life member of the UCO Alumni Association and Sigma Kappa Sorority Alumni Association. She also is affiliated with the Council for Alumni Association Executives and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education.
“We are happy to welcome Lora back to her alma mater,” said Anne Holzberlein, UCO vice president for development.
“Her enthusiasm for this university is truly contagious and we look forward to the exciting opportunities she creates for all our alumni and friends.”
The UCO Alumni Association promotes the general welfare of Central through its members while also strengthening the relationship and communication among graduates, current students, faculty, staff and friends of the university.
