Powell Named Texas A&M Distinguished Alumnus

May 31, 2022
“Fewer than one-tenth of one percent of Texas A&M’s 555,000 former students have been recognized with the Distinguished Alumnus Award. The 2022 Distinguished Alumni belong in that exceptional group of Aggies because they exemplify excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect and selfless service. They inspire us all by their example.”
Porter S. Garner III '79, Association of Former Students President and CEO
