Pierpont’s Danielle Urban (pictured second from top left) has been named president of the Terry Scholar Alumni Association Austin Chapter (TSAA Austin). As president, Urban will help TSAA Austin and its parent organization, The Terry Foundation, define and execute strategies for engaging Terry Alumni as well as current Terry Scholars in the Austin-San Antonio area.
The Terry Foundation’s mission is to improve and develop the state of Texas by helping Texas students attend the state’s finest public universities. TSAA exists to create opportunities for alumni and current Terry Scholars to give back to the Terry Foundation and to the state of Texas through relationship-building, mentorship, and personal and professional development.
The scholarship Urban received from the Terry Foundation made it possible for her to attend The University of Texas at Austin in 2005. In addition to leading TSAA’s Austin chapter, Urban has been giving back to the Terry Foundation over the last several years, volunteering as an interview panelist for the Foundation’s traditional and transfer scholar interviews and speaking at UT Austin scholar events.
Having extensive experience in media relations, communications strategy and video production, Urban is an Account Supervisor, who has been working in Pierpont Communications’ Austin office for six years. Connect with her on LinkedIn.
