History of the First Aggie Mothers’ Club in Victoria
The first organizational meeting of the Victoria Aggie Moms, originally known as the “Guadalupe Valley A&M Mothers’ Club of Victoria” was held on Monday, January 11, 1960, at the Hospitality House. Mrs. E.S. Lorms of San Antonio, President of the Federation of Texas A&M Mothers’ Club and Mrs. Fred Cole of Corpus Christi, Vice-President of the State organization were present.
Their meetings were very much like our meetings with refreshments, guest speakers, fund raisers, films, door prizes, recognition of the accomplishments of their Aggies and social events.
In 1963-64 the club disbanded due to our Country’s involvement in Vietnam. Many of the Aggies were sent off to fight in that war and the Moms did not have the heart to keep the club organized.
There would be no Aggies Mothers’ Club in Victoria until 1976 when the club was reorganized.
By individual and united effort to contribute in every way to the comfort and welfare of the students and to cooperate with the faculty of the University in maintaining a high standard of moral conduct and intellectual attainment.
To create good will, to have friendship with other Aggie Moms, and to aid students.
