About the Gala

Beginning in 2004, The Association of Former Students and Texas A&M University have annually honored all of the Distinguished Alumni during the Distinguished Alumni Gala. This prestigious black-tie dinner and celebration has become one of the most anticipated events on our campus, bringing together former students, current students and friends of Texas A&M.

This premier event will feature entertainment, an exquisite menu, Aggie camaraderie and most importantly, the honoring of the 2022 recipients of the Distinguished Alumnus Award, which is the highest award bestowed upon a former student of Texas A&M University.

If you have any questions regarding the event, please contact Jamie Veazey ’17, Director of Events, at Gala@AggieNetwork.com or call (979) 845-7514.
