Curt Langford is the president and CEO of the Texas Tech Alumni Association. Langford graduated from Texas Tech University in 1990, with a Bachelor of Arts in public relations, and in 1997, he received a Master of Arts in interdisciplinary studies with emphasis in higher education/mass communications. He has a long history with the Alumni Association, serving 11 years on staff from 1989-2000, where he held various positions including assistant editor of the Texas Techsan magazine, director of membership/marketing and ultimately, associate vice president.
During his initial tenure at the TTAA, Langford was integral in establishing the Official Texas Tech Ring program and ceremony, a tradition that continues to grow each year. Langford also served eight years as an instructor of public relations in the College of Media and Communication and was recognized as Outstanding University Employee by former TTU President Robert W. Lawless.
In his 18 years away from the TTAA, Langford worked with the American Achievement Corporation (Balfour), where he served as vice president for collegiate market development. The position, which focused on grad products and programs, including the college ring business, provided Langford an opportunity to work closely with campus professionals nationally while strengthening his grasp of the alumni relations field.
Langford and his wife Jill, also a Texas Tech graduate, are the parents of Grant and Grace who are currently enrolled as Red Raiders.
