ABOUT AUSTIN AGGIE MOMS CLUB
The Austin Texas A&M University Mothers’ Club is one of more than one hundred Aggie Moms Clubs across the country. We are organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. “We strive by individual and united effort to contribute in every way to the welfare of the students at Texas A&M University and to cooperate with the University in maintaining a high standard of moral conduct and intellectual attainment….” and we make new friends and have fun in the process!
Aggie Moms are proud, proud of Texas A&M University, proud of the daughters and sons they send to Texas A&M and proud of making a contribution: to the education of their Aggies, to the future ofTexas A&M University and to the future of the Great State of Texas.
Ada Peoples organized the first Texas A&M University Mothers’ Club in Dallas in 1922, with the same objective that remains today. She was concerned about what she thought of as the “poor” quality of life on this all-male campus, with no entertainment, no culture, and a complete lack of women’s influence. The mothers’ club idea spread and eight clubs became a federation in 1928, with Mrs. F. L. Thomas as the first Federation President. The Federation Board of today consists of 16 officers and several appointed positions. Those women serve as a coordinating body for 124 clubs and membership of 8000+.
The Austin Texas A & M University Mothers Club was established in November of 1939. In a town known for its burnt orange, the Aggie Maroon is a strong presence. Just as Mrs. Peoples wished to improve on the life of the young cadets, so do the mothers of all our current students.
The Austin Aggie Moms as we are affectionately known, meet once a month for fun, fellowship and food. We bring in speakers from the University to give us updates on what is happening on campus, opportunities for our students and many other interesting topics. Twice a year our club offers Goody Bags to parents for our students and delivers them to College Station so they will have a little something extra before finals. We raise money from our Singing Cadets concert, jewelry sales and Goody Bag sales to fund scholarships.
