Dustin's Birthday Fundraiser
Dustin was an Aggie to his very core; his love and passion for Texas A&M University was legendary. In fact, Dustin knew he was an Aggie before the first grade. He worked tirelessly to achieve his dream and in 2007, he did just that. Dustin graduated with a degree in construction science from Texas A&M and, more importantly, he received his coveted Aggie Ring.
Our foundation is currently working with The Association of Former Students to establish the Dustin Lee James ’07 Endowed Memorial Aggie Ring Scholarship. Once established, the scholarship will award a ring to either 1 or 2 Aggies each year. The number of rings distributed will likely depend on an applicant’s gender due to the difference in size between male and female rings.
To make this a reality, we have a lot of work ahead of us. An endowment requires a total of $25,000 raised over 5 years. Although steep, I know that the love and dedication we all carry for Dustin will help us accomplish this goal.
In honor of Dustin's birthday, we are launching a fundraiser where 100% of the proceeds will go towards his Aggie Ring Scholarship. The winner will receive this beautiful hand painted 9 x 12 portrait of the First Lady of Aggieland, Reveille.
Raffle tickets are $50 each. We will draw the winner in one month on January 17th!
We would like to say a very big thank you to Kimber Matus for her incredible talent and time with this painting!
