  • Howdy Aggie Moms!

    What a great time of year! Excitement is in the air at Texas A&M

    University, and by now your Aggie has completed their third

    week of school and youre hoping they are finding time to study

    along with their new activities. Maybe your student has

    graduated and is now experiencing a new chapter in their life

    that brings exciting and rewarding opportunities.

    A wonderful group of moms have committed their support and

    energy to serving on our Board. They, along with our Committee

    Chairs, have been working all summer to plan an exciting year

    for our club. We hope you will find a place to serve and

    contribute to the successes we anticipate for CCAM 2015-2016.

    We know you will find fellowship and activities that we have

    planned throughout the year to be fun and enlightening! If you

    are a new mom to our organization, please do not hesitate to

    call on myself or any board member, if you have any questions,

    concerns or suggestions.

    Whether you are a new mom, a transfer mom, a returning

    member, or a member of our Ring of Honor, lets make it a great

    year of serving TAMU, supporting our Aggies, and to be there

    for each other. We are so glad you are joining us as we come

    together to serve our students, our community, and build lasting

    friendships along the way! Grab a friend and come enjoy the

    Aggie Spirit that is like none other!

    Aggie Mom Tip #12: Teach your Aggie to separate the maroon

    laundry from the white laundry.

    Thanks and Gig Em!

    Aggie Moms Connect ing

    The new Aggie Moms of Collin County enjoyed an afternoon tea on Sunday, September 13. Approximately 90 ladies joined their

    CCAM hosts for a program of information, friendly visiting, and a full spread of lovely garden party style finger foods and desserts. It

    was great to meet the new moms and hear about their Aggies academic endeavors. The new moms are already getting into the

    Aggie spirit, and we are looking forward to a wonderful fun filled year. It was the perfect way to spend the day after a great Aggie win

    at the new Kyle Field.
