Description
The second Hallmark Event in Texas A&M’s semester-long celebration of “50 Years of Inclusion” is a dynamic panel discussion featuring four “Pioneers in a Journey Toward Inclusion.” Moderating the discussion will be author, photographer and producer Sunny Nash ’77, among the first African-American female graduates of Texas A&M. Nash will lead the discussion with reflections on her own journey at Texas A&M and beyond and then turn the discussion over to a special panel of Aggies who helped forge the path toward inclusion. Panel participants include Sammy Williams ’68, one of the first black football players at Texas A&M, who currently works with the Caring Aggie Mentorship Program in Houston; Daniel Hernandez ’73, the first Hispanic to serve as the university’s assistant Director of Admissions, Affirmative Action Officer, Assistant General Counsel, and Associate Vice Chancellor, in addition to being a founding member of CAMAC, MALFA, and TAMHN; and Carri Baker Wells ’84, a well-known political leader in San Antonio and current chair of the “Go Red” campaign for the American Heart Association in San Antonio. Wells was one of the first Diamond Darlings at Texas A&M and helped lead the effort to get The Zone at Kyle Field completed. Each member of the panel will take a few moments to share their personal stories and then engage in a lively and thought-provoking discussion on the importance of diversity and inclusion.
