Last week I was proud to witness not only history, but the culmination of years of hard work in the legislature when Texas A&M San Antonio officially became a four-year institution, welcoming over 500 freshman students.
It was an honor and privilege to join the first freshman class in their new tradition, the Jaguar March, which is a one-mile march across campus, beginning at the bell tower. The march is one of many traditions that will originate from this year's freshman class, and aims to build school spirit and camaraderie. I may have been the only person in a suit; luckily it was a cool 95 degrees!
Before I joined the students in the march, I was honored with the "keys to the campus" along with the Universities’ first Community Award.
