Texas A&M has been honoring families of current students since 1956 when the first Aggie Mother of the Year was announced. Since then, this honor has evolved to suit the needs of the growing student population. In 1974 the first Parents of the Year were selected and announced to the student body during what is now known as Family Weekend.
The award, given once a year, recognizes the dedication and involvement of Aggie family members. Families selected as Parents of the Year are invited to be recognized during Family Weekend events, Parents of the Year reunion events, and other campus activities.
The Parents of the Year Award does not discriminate against non-traditional households. If you were raised by someone other than your birth mother or father, please take the time to nominate that special individual. You may nominate both of your parents or caregivers for the award. Nominees do not have to be former students to be selected for the award.
The submission link along with the deadline will be posted come fall semester.
Thanks & Gig’em!
