NEXT GENERAL MEETING – Tuesday, September 7th We hope to see you next month!

Please join us. Guest speakers will be Tanya Gillespie and some of the staff from Taylor’s Place. Taylor’s Place might just be a place your student will end up hanging out. A&M is so big, and Taylor’s Place is a home away from home!

Tanya and TJ’s story is amazing and heartbreaking, but they have taken their tragic experience and have made it their mission to give students respite, families hospitality, and have an unwavering dedication to Texas A&M. Tanya and TJ truly earned the title of 2020-2021 Parents of the Year for TAMU! For more info and giving opportunities, go to https://www.taylorsplace.org .

Thank you to those who currently give their time to serve and those who offered to step up and volunteer at future meetings/events, as this will only make us stronger as an organization! We were overwhelmed with the number of folks who already want to help out!

Let me know if you have questions or concerns!

God bless and Gig ‘em!
