In 1963 the tradition of Texas A&M was forever changed as the doors of the university were opened to women, our presence strengthening its academic and cultural life and making a permanent mark on the history of the institution. For 45 years, women have entered the hallowed halls of the Memorial Student Center and have grown to comprise nearly half of the student body. Today women former students all over the world distinguish themselves in their careers and communities. By what we achieve in life and work and family, we honor our legacy as former students of Texas A&M University.
Women former students have a unique bond with the current women student body and with women faculty who teach and research to advance the greatness of Texas A&M. We are their sisters, daughters, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, friends, colleagues, and mentors.
The Women Former Students’ Network legacy will come to life in many ways, one of which is financial.
The establishment of the Women’s Legacy Fund honored the 45 year anniversary of women’s admittance to Texas A&M. This Fund provides monetary support to the women of Texas A&M, and we are seeking women former students to help establish two Women’s Legacy Fund Scholarships.
The final goal of The Campaign is $200,000 which will provide two presidential endowed scholarships.
Effective November 2008, the first scholarship was completed. Meet PES Scholarship Recipient, Kelly Albright. We expect to complete funding and award the second endowed scholarship in 2013.
Gifts to 45 Women Campaign may be given in one payment or may be pledged with the full gift given over five years.
