And the Winners Are…

by | Oct 31, 2008 | Community Circle

I’m here at Texas A&M’s Zone Club, within the confines of Kyle Field, where the 2008 Aggie 100 were just announced. 

Guest speakers included Richard Scruggs, Executive Director of the CNVE; John White, the Vice Chairman of the Texas A&M University Board of Regents; Dr. Elsa Murano, President of Texas A&M; Dr. Jerry Strawser, the Dean of the Mays School; and yours truly to give the details on the honorees for the Class of 2008.

My speaking role was limited, but the role of PKF Texas in the background and verification process was an enjoyable and tedious process.  I want to thank John Stephenson, my assistant for all his help.

Over 650 people attended the Awards Luncheon today.  The event was sold out several weeks ago without and marketing effort and is now the hottest ticket on campus!

Major sponsors of the event include:  The Texas A&M Foundation, The Association of Former Students, Hollinden Professional Services Marketing, Research Valley Partnership, Infinity Prosports, and PKF Texas.

In addition, Clay Schlinke, CEO of the #1 ranked Aggie business Tesoro Homes and Development, spoke and Herbert Glover, CEO Of last year’s #1 ranked Aggie 100 #1 company challenged the attendees to add to the Aggie 100 Scholars program. The Aggie 100 Scholars program was started last year by the honorees of the Aggie 100 program. Four PhD candidates received proceeds from the scholarship fund.

The singing cadets kicked off the event and followed by lunch.

The highlight of the day was the countdown to the actual honorees.
