Shelby Purdy, Communication Specialist

Shelby Purdy

Who I am

I earned my B.A. in Communication with an emphasis in Journalism from Texas A&M University- Kingsville and am currently taking courses for a Masters degree in Communication. When I’m not telling the stories of the university, I’m making wood burned art, or spending time with my Maltipoo, Little Bear.

What I Do at Texas A&M-Kingsville

As a proud graduate of Texas A&M-Kingsville, I jumped at the opportunity to highlight how special this university is. I’m passionate about using my online communication skills and expertise to share the magic of Javelina Nation with others. I collaborate with the rest of the Office of Marketing and Communication to ensure that our stories, web and media presence reflect the mission of Texas A&M-Kingsville.

My Texas A&M-Kingsville Story

As a student at A&M-Kingsville, I spent the better part of my college career reporting for our campus media outlets. I wrote articles, produced, shot footage, reported on camera and even starred in a commercial. A&M-Kingsville gave me so many great opportunities and I couldn’t help but fall in love. I have a true appreciation and passion for this university that makes my job of sharing its stories easy.
