Preston Sparks
Director of University Communications Services

Day Job:
I am responsible for directing the university’s news, web and social media team in the Office of Communications and Marketing, working with the university’s colleges, schools and units to promote the stories that align with Auburn’s strategic plan and brand positioning. Our office manages the university’s primary web and social media presence and serves as the official source for Auburn University news.

Favorite Auburn Experience:
My favorite experience involving Auburn would have to be watching the 2013 “kick six” miracle football game with my wife, mom and dad – who is a 1969 Auburn alum. I’ll never forget the excitement we shared when Auburn’s Chris Davis returned the short field goal attempt by Alabama for the game-ending touchdown. As a lifelong Auburn fan and native of Opelika, I’m also living a daily dream-come-true experience in working for Auburn and having the high honor of directing the stories of the university.

In addition to my avid love for Auburn, I enjoy traveling the country with my wife, playing tennis, singing at church, watching sports and cable news shows, and spending quality time with my family and friends.
