WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE
BRAZOS COUNTY AGGIE MOMS
It is a privilege and honor to serve as your 2014-2015 President and further the mission of the Brazos County A&M Mothers’ Club. Whether you are a new Aggie Mom with a student just entering Texas A&M or your Aggie is a former student – Once an Aggie Mom, Always an Aggie Mom!
The purpose of our Club is to “contribute in every way to the comfort and welfare of the students of Texas A&M University and to cooperate with the University in maintaining a high standard of moral conduct and intellectual attainment.” We do this primarily by assisting students with their academic and leadership development through scholarships and contributions to recognized student organizations. Aggie Moms are the heart of Texas A&M and I look forward to working with each of you as we accomplish these goals!
As we fulfill our purpose, we also have a lot of fun, and the fall semester is off to a great start for the Brazos County A&M Mothers’ Club. The Howdy Tea hosted by Texas A&M University Interim President Dr. Mark Hussey ’79 and his wife Melissa ’81 on September 16th was a great success. On behalf of the Club, I want to thank President-elect Julie Porter for all her efforts coordinating a fun evening with Aggie Moms, University administrators, student leaders, and Reveille!! I also want to thank your Board and committee chairs for providing the fabulous food!! It was a great evening of Aggie fellowship, networking, and pictures with Reveille!
We also had a great turnout for our annual Wings Party on Tuesday, October 7th at the Wings N’ More Party Room on Deacon. We were honored and privileged to have Rusty Burson as our guest speaker! Whoop! Rusty has authored and co-authored many books, including “The 100-Year Decision: Texas A&M and the SEC” with Dr. R. Bowen Loftin ’71, the Texas A&M University President who made the decision that A&M would leave the Big XII and join the Southeastern Conference. Rustydiscussed this impactful decision and what happened behind the scenes during this pivotal time at Texas A&M and in Texas A&M athletics. “The 100-Year Decision: Texas A&M and the SEC” are available through Aggieland Outfitters.
On November 3rd we had a fun profit share at Painting with a Twist in College Station. We enjoyed an evening of fellowship & creativity while we painted the beautiful first lady of Aggieland, Miss Reveille. In January we will have dinner & games at J. Cody's and in February we will include our husbands and significant others for a nice evening at Downtown Uncorked. Our program chairmoms are also planning a tailgate party in conjunction with a lady Aggie softball game in March and we will conclude the year with the Aggie Mom Boutique and annual banquet in April.
I want to personally invite you to become involved in your Aggie Mom club.. There is a list of opportunities included in the Programs/Calendar tab. Please check the website frequently for updates, and I hope to see you at the Downtown Uncorked event on February 12.
I appreciate you and look forward to a great year!
