President’s Letter

Greetings From The President
Houston Texas A&M University Mothers’ Club

Howdy Friends,
Welcome to “A Whole New World”  the theme I chose for my presidency. If you told me at the beginning of 2020, when I assumed the role as your President, our Club would exist in a historic trifecta of a global pandemic, economic distress and racial unrest I would not have believed you.  Heading into my Presidency, our club just had one of the most successful Crazy Auctions in recent years, The Singing Cadets had performed in Houston, then the first wave of Covid 19 hit and changed our lives forever.

However, I choose to think about “gratitude” over “grievance” it keeps my mind moving in a positive direction. The quality of our thoughts creates the quality of our lives. I realize that so many in our world are suffering untold hardships and that plague can bring collapse, but it can also bring rebirth. We all are learning to reinvent ourselves, and we will have a great new future once we are on the other side of this.  After all Texas A & M University and Aggie Moms can be the torch that enlightens the entire world.  Starting with Aggie Mom University, a new online training program that offers core and elective classes for Aggie Moms to connect, learn and develop to drive success in our clubs.

As much as I am honored to serve as your President for the 2020-2021 school year, we are facing unprecedented times that will require patience, flexibility, understanding and new hybrid ways of doing things.  As diverse as we are, we all share a common thread that is Texas A & M University, our students, Former Students, and drive to support students through scholarships and gifts to special programs that uphold the core values of TAMU.

My hope for this year is to safely step out of our comfort zone and change the way we have been living.  While also listening without judgement, speaking without prejudice, understand without pretension and love without conditions. Try to look for something positive in every day, even if some days you have to look a little harder. We must believe all things are possible when we come together and work to provide members with a wealth of knowledge as we learn about Aggie traditions, programs, and services so our students can maximize their college experience. We support each other, create friendships, and have fun in the process!

We have a interesting year ahead, so bring a friend and join us!

Thanks and Gig ’em,
Michelle Maresh
President 2020 – 2021
