Aggie Tradition

From today's presentation at College Station honoring my grandfather (who died when I was an infant).

I am not an Aggie, but when Aggies talk about "tradition" -- that the university remembers and honors their own so long after-- it means something... something important.

Plaque presented to my family and me in honor of my grandfather, the first Texas A&M PhD recipient.

The reference to heroism was an act he made saving a boy's life that was recognized by the Carnegie Medal of Heroism. This award provided money to be used for his education. My grandfather wisely selected Texas A&M and continued his education.
