Campus Closure in Observance of George Floyd Memorial

Posted on

A Message From President Mark A. Hussey

Nearly two weeks ago, the nation witnessed the tragic death of George Floyd. Mr. Floyd attended Texas A&M University-Kingsville. He was a Javelina. 

Given how Mr. Floyd’s death has touched our community, this state and nation, Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp has authorized System universities and agency heads to release any member of the faculty, staff or students on Monday, June 8, in observance of Mr. Floyd’s death. A memorial service will also be held in Houston from 12 to 6 p.m. on that day.

I encourage all Javelinas to use this day to reflect on what we all must do to treat everyone with respect and dignity and classes will be canceled. Campus will remain open with essential personnel only. Supervisors will notify essential personnel.

Catapult appointments will continue as scheduled Monday. Any cancellations should be made through Human Resources by emailing Sara Martinez sarah.martinez@tamuk.edu
