Howdy Ags,

It was a tough week for both Aggie teams on the hardwood. The men will drop out of the top 10 and the ladies will probably miss out the chance to host part of the NCAA tournament.  But, Von Miller winning Super Bowl MVP was a nice “win” for the Aggies last night.  Baseball and softball are about to get started and the track teams are gearing up as well. Still plenty of athletics back on campus to keep us entertained through the spring. It appears we have some interest for some watch parties as the basketball tournament gets underway so keep your eye on your email for updates and check the website calendar.


While we are very excited to have new members involved with the club we still have several positions available if you would like to get involved.

I want to thank Joe Neal Kerr ’98 for stepping up as our new Networking Lunch Coordinator. Many of you who attend the luncheons already Joe Neal, please thank him next time you see him. Joe Neal will be selecting luncheon locations and following up with a recap of all those who attended that day. Please continue to pass along your suggestions for new/favorite locations to and we will get them to him.

Current Committee Chair Openings include:
+ Howdy Hour Coordinator
+ Big Event Coordinator
+ Advertising Coordinator


It is that time of year for high school seniors to begin applying for scholarships. As A&M continues its admittance procedures, keep in mind that our WCAMC scholarship application is now available. While we have attempted to make sure that all Williamson County High Schools have access to the applications, we would also like to remind you that the application is available on our website;
Please keep in mind that the deadline for receiving applications is 1 APRIL ’16.


As we are already into February, April will certainly be here before you know it. While we have a fair amount of the planning done for this years Muster there is still plenty to do and opportunities to get involved. This year’s Muster Chairperson, Abby Williford ’06 will have a Muster Committee meeting on Thursday 11 Feb at Double Dave’s in Round Rock. This is the same location as our monthly Family Night so come out and join us for a bite to eat and stay for the meeting scheduled to begin at 7PM. Sub-committee chairs are still needed for check-in, decorations, food and a possible co-chair working towards next years event,


Please come out (with your four legged friend) and join us for the SEC Happy Hour set for Tuesday 16 February at the Yard Bar. Be sure to wear your school colors and enjoy the evening, first five dogs get in free.


The RRAAMC would like to invite everyone to their annual Anniversary Dinner & Silent Auction on Saturday March 5, 2016 @ 6:30PM, benefiting their student scholarship program. Tickets are $20 for a night of dinner, entertainment, silent auction and must be purchased by 29 Feb. The event will be held at the Allen R Baca Center located at 301 W Bagdad in Round Rock. For additional information contact Melanie Busby:



We work hard to offer a variety of events in hopes that your schedule will allow you to join as often as possible. We realize everyone is busy but it is always good to take a little time for friends and expand your network. We will continue our ‘THURSDAY’ event schedule, but keep your eyes open for a few twist as we move through the year.

This week we will have our Family Night at Double Dave’s. There is a new twist as we will meet at our traditional location in Round Rock (as well as the Muster meeting) and have a simultaneous satellite event at Double Dave’s – Cedar Park (in the Railyard). On Thursday 18 Feb we will have our networking luncheon at BJ’s Brewhouse – Round Rock, located in front of the outlet mall on IH-35. We are still finalizing our Howdy Hour event but look to try one of the many new micro-brew pubs in the area.

A note from our VP of Communications:

Some of you may have seen that an online map was published on our website and linked to via social media that showed how Maroon WilCo was getting.

There was some concern from The Association of Former Students about us using the alumni data that they provided us in such a manner.  The map originally included street level information but NOT individual address numbers.  Per their request that map has been deleted and replaced with a simpler map that only uses city/zip code data for the alumni in Williamson County.  You may view the new map toward the bottom of our home page.
