Our 2024-2025 Board & Chairs

President – Jeanie Ziegler, Illinois


Our story continues to be written. Each chapter takes a new turn, in this case, to Texas A&M. I have learned a while ago, the best way to understand what our children are doing is to get involved. Now, college is a whole different ball game, and while our role shifts, we need the support as much as our kids do!

Enter Aggie Moms….This amazing group of women are here for each other, as well as our children. As an out-of-state parent, we face other logistic challenges, and there’s a chance someone has faced the same situation. We share our stories, both the uplifting and the heartbreaks. We also learn. We learn about the traditions of Texas A&M and what makes this University so special, and we learn from Departments and Organizations that we invite as speakers.

We invite you to join us, we welcome you at whatever stage of the journey you are at and be a part of something truly special – The Aggie Mom’s club!
