2015 Aggie Muster
About this event :
Guest Speaker: Sean Page ’87 – Original Member of the 12th Man Kickoff Squad under Jackie Sherrill and later co-authored the book “No Experience Required” along with Coach Sherrill telling about their experiences during those exciting years in A&M football history.
Aggie Muster is a time-honored tradition at Texas A&M University which celebrates the camaraderie of the school while remembering the lives of Aggies who have died, specifically those in the past year. Muster officially began on April 21, 1922 as a day for remembrance of fellow Aggies. Muster ceremonies today take place in approximately 320 locations globally. The largest muster ceremony occurs in Reed Arena, on the Texas A&M campus.
The “Roll Call for the Absent” commemorates Aggies, alumni and current students, who died that year. Aggies light candles, and friends and families of Aggies who died that year answer “here” when the name of their loved one is “called”. Campus muster also serves as a 50th year class reunion for the corresponding graduating class. Some non-campus muster ceremonies do not include the pageantry of the campus ceremony, and might consist simply of a barbecue.
