Taylor Smith, '15
I'm Taylor Smith, and I'm heading up the Houston Network for Houston-area alumni/alumnae of Texas State University and SWT. I arrived at Texas State in the fall of '08 right after high school and soon found a home in campus involvement with RHA, Student Foundation, Cat Camp, and my proudest contribution, a tour guide for the Visitor's Center. Texas State has always been very special to me, and it truly shaped who I've become as an adult and a professional. Not a day goes by where I don't miss those hills. I earned a B.A. in Mass Comm. - Advertising with a minor in French, and I've been in Houston for a few years now. I currently work for an ad agency based out of NYC.
