A Message from the President
I am excited and proud to embark on a new decade of connecting with the Aggie community and Aggie Women in particular! 2019 was an eventful year and we expect 2020 to hold continued opportunities to connect, engage and give back to those who love Aggieland like we do. The year was a busy one in which we held panel discussions throughout the year attended by increasing numbers of Aggie students, provided an opportunity for both current students and former students to connect at our annual networking event, recognized and honored three new Legacy recipients and one Texas A&M Eminent Scholar at our annual awards ceremony and engaged at multiple university functions. We also expanded our outreach through providing more information online through social media. As in 2018, one of our former Legacy recipients was awarded the highest honor an Aggie can receive from the University—the Distinguished Alumnus Award!
As 2019 closes, we celebrate everyone who participated in our networking events, panel discussions, and award ceremonies and who gave their time, effort and money for Aggie Scholarships and connecting with the University. We will continue our efforts in 2020 and find new ways to continue to connect with you and fulfill our mission.
As we plan for 2020 with our newest board of directors, I am inspired by the love and dedication that I see everywhere for Aggieland and Aggies. We are the Aggies, the Aggies are we! We will strive to keep you involved and informed throughout the year, so please stay connected through our website and on social media. We love to hear from you!
