The number 12 holds a special meaning for Aggies. From its origin on the football field when E. King Gill responded to the call to help his team, the 12th Man has always represented a spirit of selfless service, enthusiasm and devotion to Texas A&M.

To celebrate that Aggie spirit of support, The Association of Former Students will feature special stories through Dec. 12 to show how your donation to The Association of Former Students makes a difference.

When you give to Texas A&M through The Association of Former Students, you are supporting traditions, student organizations and students, like Brian K. Sowell '14 who received a scholarship from former students through The Association. When you give, you are strengthening Texas A&M. Learn how to give to The Association of Former Students at AggieNetwork.com/Giving.

Thank you for supporting Texas A&M University! Happy 12-12-12, Aggies!

Dear donors to The Association of Former Students,

Thank you for 'passing it back' to another Ag. Your generosity in donating to the scholarship fund has benefitted and impacted me in a very tangible way.

I am a junior in the College of Architecture. I am pursuing a degree in environmental design; in the future I hope to run a small architecture firm in Texas. The College of Architecture requires that its students study away from the university for a semester in their junior year. Your incredible gift has played a major part for this study away semester by providing much needed funds to travel abroad. This spring, I will be traveling to Barcelona, Spain to study architecture for the semester. This trip will inspire and teach me incredible things about architecture, and it would not be possible without the generosity of donors like you.

Thank you again for your special gift. As I study architecture, I am keenly aware of the opportunity architects possess to contribute back to others. Your gift serves as further reminder what impact one individual can have on another. Thanks.

Best regards,
Brian K. Sowell '14
