LONG BEACH, Miss. - David Estorge has returned to his alma mater, The University of Southern Mississippi, as its new development officer for Southern Miss Gulf Coast.

"I am thrilled to be back at Southern Miss because it gives me an opportunity to impact its future," said Estorge. "Southern Miss did so much for me. The administration - Dr. Joe Paul, the late Dr. Tom Shoemaker, and Dr. Aubrey Lucas - were excellent role models for students. I will never forget the influence that they had on my life and others; now it's time for me to give back."

While at Southern Miss, Estorge served as SGA president, was a member of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, vice president of the Interfraternity Council, and was inducted into the Southern Miss Hall of Fame. He graduated from Southern Miss in 1996 with a bachelor of science degree in psychology, and later attended Florida State University, where he earned a master's degree in higher education administration in 1998.

Estorge has more than five years of development experience. He served as director of development for St. Stanislaus College in Bay St. Louis and at Brothers of the Sacred Heart Foundation in New Orleans.

A native of Metairie, La., he currently resides in Gulfport with his wife, Jaime, and their two daughters, Allie Marie, 3, and Anders Leigh, 15 weeks.
