Who Was E.E. McQuillen, Class of 1920?
This prestigious group is named for a man who made a significant impact on all Aggies: E.E. McQuillen, Class of 1920, was the Executive Secretary of The Association of Former Students and during his 1926-47 tenure made an incredible difference to countless A&M students and former students. He encouraged creation of A&M Clubs statewide and outside Texas; he leveraged the fame of the 1942 Muster on Corregidor to inspire hundreds of Muster meetings worldwide; he focused the drive to build a Memorial Student Center; and by inspiring Aggies to give back, he created student loan funds and opportunity scholarships that allowed thousands of Aggies to stay in school during the Depression and after. During the year, there will be specific campaigns and outreach periods in which McQuillen Society volunteers will participate.
Uniting together, members of the McQuillen Society will...
- Share with others the reasons why they give to The Association in support of Texas A&M and Texas Aggies.
- Receive training and support in identifying Aggies to whom they will personally reach out.
- Give a few hours for developing relationships and securing Century Club memberships each month.
- Be current Association donors themselves.
- Uphold Association standards of courtesy, respect and confidentiality, aiming to develop lasting relationships.

This small act of service ensures our tradition of excellence and shows the abundant love and gratitude I have for Texas A&M.- Mallory Odom '12JOIN NOW
