President of The Sul Ross Group

The Sul Ross Group is made up of all Aggies who have attended A&M from the Classes that have celebrated 55 years or more since graduation and reunites each year in College Station. The Reunions are organized by the president and first and second vice president. A common misconception is that the group is comprised of former Ross Volunteers, but that is not a prerequisite of being a member of the group. All Classes from the Class of ’67 and back have been officially inducted into the group and are welcome at the Reunion, even if an individual missed his or her induction. The group originally formed in 1947 when several Classes, who were students during the presidency of Lawrence Sullivan Ross, came together to enjoy one Reunion rather than organizing multiple Class Reunions. T.L. Smith ’98 and a few others are credited with the formation of the Sul Ross Group; while he served as General Chairman for the Reunions, he also funded the Reunions. Although the Sul Ross Group has evolved over more than 50 years, the general purpose remains the same.

Current Sul Ross Group President Edis Oliver '63 encourages all those eligible to be a member of the group — that is, any former student of A&M celebrating more than 55 years since graduation — be an active part of the group and to spread the word about this wonderful bunch of Aggies. The 2023 Sul Ross Group Reunion will take place March 7-9, 2023.
