Anjuli (A.J.) Renold serves as the Executive Director of the American Red Cross Heart of Texas Chapter. The mission of the American Red Cross is to alleviate human suffering in the face of disaster by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.
A.J. has been with the Red Cross since December 2019. Prior to that time she spent 10 years as an advocate for children with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) as an Executive Director for Voices for Children, CASA of the Brazos Valley, and Director of Family Engagement of CASA in Travis County. She is well prepared to actively pursue solutions to social problems with a degree from Texas A&M (class of ’02) as well as a master’s degree from the University of North Texas (2009).
The fact that Ms. Renold is passionate about helping others who are disproportionately affected by adversity such as child welfare needs, lack of access to healthcare and nourishment, or the effects of natural disasters is very obvious through her untiring engagement in community organizations. Recently, she has been very instrumental in managing the Brazos Valley vaccination hub for distributing the COVID vaccine.
A.J. is a role model for her two sons, ages 13 and 14, through additional leadership positions in the community. She currently serves as President-Elect of the Bryan Rotary, Treasurer of the First Presbyterian Children’s Center Ministry, Treasurer of Boy Scout Troup 976, and board member of Fiestas Patrias Mexicanas in Bryan as well as the Bryan ISD Superintendent Advisory Council. Beyond the community she currently serves as the Deputy Representative to the Veteran’s Affairs Voluntary Service for Temple and Waco area VA hospitals.
There is no doubt that Anjuli Renold deserves recognition and words of appreciation for her efforts to sustain equitable and resilient communities.
