Posted on

KINGSVILLE (April 22, 2019) —  Over 350 alumni and friends of Texas A&M University-Kingsville were in attendance at the 2019 President’s Legacy Ball held April 6. The President’s Legacy Ball is held annually at the university and recognizes and honors the new Legacy Society members for their generosity to students, faculty and programs. Members of the Legacy Society are individuals, corporations and foundations who have contributed $100,000 or more, cumulatively, to the university.


The President’s Legacy Ball is held in the Grand Ballrooms of the Memorial Student Union Building and is hosted by the university’s President and First Lady, Dr. Mark and Melissa Hussey.


The honorees of the night were Aramark; The Frederick J. Bremner Charitable Trust; Mary Ann Brookshire and the late Robert Scott “Bob” Brookshire; the late Vannie E. Cook Jr.; Enbridge; Helen Kleberg Groves; Billy and Angie Lemmons; and the late Gary and Joan Underbrink.


Each honoree was presented with a bronze plaque which will be proudly displayed on the University Legacy Wall of Honor to further display each honoree’s service to the university. A silent auction also was held at the event, allowing attendees to bid on many unique items or experiences, with proceeds going toward the University Scholarship Endowment.


Outside of the plaque presentations, the night included a plated dinner which gave way to live musical entertainment by Glynn Garcia and The Bay Rock Orchestra. The night concluded with celebration and dancing.
