Each year, The Association of Former Students’ 12 Under 12 Young Alumni Spotlight recognizes 12 Aggies who have graduated within the past 12 years for their outstanding accomplishments in business, civic service and philanthropy, and for representing Texas A&M’s core values of excellence, integrity, leadership, loyalty, respect, and selfless service.
The 12 Under 12 Young Alumni Spotlight was conceived by the Young Alumni Advisory Council, a body of young former students who advise The Association’s staff on matters related to young alumni programming and communications.
