Class of '89 30 Year Reunion

September 13-15, 2019
College Station, TX

Printable Registration Form

HOWDY
Howdy, Ags!

We are proud to be the last A&M Class of the decade. A decade that saw resurgence in America; the end of the iron curtain; beginning of VHS tapes, and our Aggie experience of never losing to Texas. We were educated, grew up, made lifelong friends, generated some great stories, faced life lessons, and were molded into leaders of our time for Texas and for our country. Moreover, we solidified our bond as Aggies and former students.

We are older now (the number 50+ does not sound that bad anymore), getting some gray, a little slower, and some of us have even already retired from a variety of occupations or other circumstances. We’ve lost a few good Classmates and comrades; but conversely many of us have enriched ourselves with family and children (we won’t mention grandchildren just yet).

Let’s get together at our Reunion and share some memories and relive or strengthen friendships as buddies and as the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of ’89.

We look forward to seeing everyone in September. Thanks and gig 'em!
