ARLINGTON - The University of Texas at Arlington announced today that Christina Million, executive director of the UT Arlington Alumni Association, will leave the University at the end of January to become assistant vice president for the Georgia State University Alumni Association in Atlanta.

"Christina has done a remarkable job of managing the UT Arlington Alumni Association during a pivotal time in its development," UT Arlington President James D. Spaniolo said. "We are grateful for all that she has done to improve our alumni relations program during the past five years, and we wish her all the best as she takes on this next exciting challenge."

Million joined UT Arlington in 2004. Under her leadership the alumni association developed numerous award-winning programs and achieved an unprecedented 400 percent increase in membership. Million is credited with stabilizing the alumni association's budget and guiding the purchase and payoff of the building that now houses the first Alumni Center in the University's history. She also initiated new programs including the Official Maverick Class Ring, the Alumni Online Merchandise Store, the Out of the Blue e-newsletter, the Student Alumni Association open membership program and the Circle of Pride fundraising program.

"The past five years have been very rewarding, and I am so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work with such an amazing organization," Million said. "I have had the pleasure of working with some of the most incredible people during my five years at UT Arlington, especially those individuals at the Alumni Association, who will always be my family."

Emily Hoad, alumni association president, echoed those sentiments.

"During Christina's tenure, the UT Arlington Alumni Association has been significantly strengthened," she said. "We are extremely grateful beneficiaries of her considerable drive and talents and wish her the very best at Georgia State University."

Amy Schultz, associate vice president for communications and community relations at UT Arlington, has been named interim executive director of the alumni association. Schultz will serve in that role until the search for a new executive director has concluded. She will continue to oversee all community relations activities, including the recently launched College Town initiative.

A search committee is currently being assembled, and the search for a new executive director will commence immediately.
