Melanie Edwards Virreira ’06
Rocky Mountain Auburn Club
Melanie Edwards Virreira is president of the Rocky Mountain Auburn Club and has been an active member of the club for the past five years; Virreira served as secretary and vice president before taking the reins as president.
Participating in the club has given Virreira the opportunity to find Auburn in a city that was foreign to her.
“Not being from Denver, The Rocky Mountain Auburn Club was the way my husband and I made friends and got acclimated with the community,” Virreira said. “The members of the club are so welcoming and inviting because very few of us are from the area. Everyone is looking to the club as a way to congregate with other people who understand what it means to be an Auburn Tiger.”
Virreira and the Rocky Mountain Auburn Club create and participate in numerous volunteer activities that allow them to give back to the community. “Just last November, RMAC members got together to link up with Denver Feed A Family and help pack 2,100 boxes that helped feed more than 20,000 people over the Thanksgiving holiday,” Virreira said. “This year, we will be joining the annual Keep Denver Beautiful event, The Great Colfax Cleanup.”
Graduating with a master’s degree in communications from Auburn, Virreira is currently the national account manager for Bell Corp. Her responsibilities include managing mid-size beverage accounts, like Dr. Pepper, Snapple Group and Nestle Waters, and developing business with strategic start-ups and growth markets.
Virreira comes from a long line of Auburn graduates, including her mother, father and sister.
An Auburn Club is for all Auburn alumni and friends. The Auburn Alumni Association is dependent upon members making contributions to provide the necessary financial support to help carry on the services and programs required for an effective Auburn Club Program. According to Section 5 of the Policy for Auburn Clubs included in the by-laws of the Auburn Alumni Association, active membership in an Auburn Club shall be limited to the active members of the Auburn Alumni Association. All club officers must be active members of the National Alumni Association, but the by-laws of any club provide that worthy and loyal friends who are not alumni may become associate members of the local club. All clubs should promote this effort, since Auburn has tremendous non-alumni support from people across the state, region, and nation.
Access Auburn alumni clubs throughout the nation on auburnclubs.org. Auburn Clubs is an important and useful way to stay connected with your alumni.
Join a club group, chat online, find all club meetings and upload your own photos and videos. Be a part of the Auburn Club community today!
