Reba Ragsdale, director of donor relations, special events and travel, will retire from her position at the 12th Man Foundation after 16 years of service.

...
Ragsdale served as the foundation's director of donor relations, special events and travel for 16 years.
Marks very nearly didn't have the opportunity to pay homage to Ragsdale.
...
Ragsdale is a breast cancer survivor who underwent a double mastectomy in 1994.Two years ago, she had a heart attack.
She has been president of Bryan Rotary Club, chairman of the Cattle Baron's Ball to benefit the American Cancer Society, chairman of the Newman 10 Awards to recognize small businesses, participant in the Bryan Citizens Police Academy, co-chair of Surviving and Thriving to promote breast cancer research and chair of the Brazos County Community Foundation to benefit education.She's involved in other causes, too.
...
The main problem was changing the pregame buffet," Ragsdale said."Food Services was obligated to feed the [hurricane] evacuees being housed in Reed Arena along with the people in the triage hospital at the Vet School.I negotiated with Food Services to serve 200 people, and we had 180 show up.Everybody pitched in and made it happen.It was amazing to me how many people came up here for the football game not knowing if they would have a house when they got back."
When the team goes on the road, Ragsdale books the hotels, negotiates rates, sets up pregame meals and arranges transportation from the hotel to the stadium for the donors.Not in her job description but performed just the same: She orders birthday cakes and anniversary flowers.
"My goal is to provide good customer service, whatever that turns out to be," she said.
On one occasion, that meant getting Food Services to bring a blender to a pregame buffet so the food staff could prepare food for a donor who was recovering from heart surgery.And one donor was allergic to beef, so that meant a special order of chicken or fish.
Most trips go smoothly, but the ones that don't are the ones she remembers.
"During a pregame meal in Manhattan [Kan.], one of our donors thought she was having a heart attack," Ragsdale said.
...
"We had to stay in 11 different hotels," Ragsdale said."It was a nightmare.We had 22 buses to work out the logistics for."
A different kind of nightmare happened at the Meadowlands in New Jersey when the Aggies played Florida State in the 1998 Kickoff Classic.
"When the game was over, one of our couples was missing," Ragsdale said.
...
Reba Ragsdale, director of donor relations, special events and travel, displays the plaque presented to her that will mark a suite in her name.
"After an Oklahoma game, the hotel buffet ran out of food, and we had lost the game.People were not happy."
At an Independence Bowl game in Shreveport, La., on New Year's Eve, Ragsdale couldn't book a major hotel, what with the casinos and all."We rented a building at the fairgrounds and had it catered," Ragsdale said.
...
For the past 16 years, Ragsdale said, she has had the perfect job.
...
But enough is enough, Ragsdale said.
...
On Dec. 29, Ragsdale will walk out of her office in the north end zone of Kyle Field and close the door that reads, "Reba Ragsdale Suite."
