Merry Christmas, Alumni!

I hope this letter finds everyone healthy, happy, and surviving the sometimes hectic holiday season. It is hard to believe that we are already at the end of the first semester of this year!

This first semester comes to an end after this week’s finals and it has been one for the books. This small, but mighty class is a force to be reckoned with and has worked extremely hard to balance the fluid situation that Covid has created. To say that I am proud of this group of young men and women is an understatement. I tip my hat to them.

The last year and a half has brought great collaborations and much needed conversations about our Ranch Management program and the continuing efforts to keep everything moving in a positive direction . The Alumni Committee, Board of Directors, and TCURM Personnel have worked tirelessly to organize, plan, and finally execute an update for our Alumni as a whole.

Our Alumni Executive Committee has worked hard to make this Alumni Association the best it can be. I truly believe we are on a path to continue our successes and continue to grow our Alumni Association to be the strongest it has ever been.

In order for us to continue on this path, I must reiterate the importance of participation. Our Annual Alumni Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, January 22nd with the Class Agents meeting  being held the night before (January 21). It is vital to have as many Class Agents and Alumni attend these meetings as possible due to important discussions, voting, and business that needs to be conducted.

Please make every effort to attend this event. We are excited for a great weekend highlighting  insight into the successful collaborations happening between TCU, TCURM, & the TCU Institute of RM.

I look forward to seeing you all in January and can only hope for a “packed house.” Many Blessings to you and your families during this Holiday Season. Thank you for allowing me to serve in this  position.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
