Business leader Kathleen Gibson, a 1981 Texas A&M University graduate, will be the keynote speaker for the 2018 Aggie Muster ceremony on Friday, April 21 at 7 p.m. in Reed Arena.
Muster honors all Aggies who have died during the past year and is considered one of the most solemn traditions of Texas A&M. There are more than 300 Muster ceremonies held around the world.
Gibson is a recipient of Texas A&M’s Tyrus R. Timm Honor Registry Award, Women’s Legacy Award, and the honor of being named as a Fish Camp Namesake. She serves on the Advisory Council for the Center for International Business Studies at Texas A&M. She is a past chair of The Association of Former Students (2014) and currently sits on the Board of Trustees for The Texas A&M Foundation, and she is also the first woman to serve on Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
She has been recognized in the Dallas Business Journal as a ‘Top 25 Industry Leader in Women in Business,’ and by the Profiles in Diversity Journal in the 10th Annual Women Worth Watching edition. She serves on the Advisory Council for the Center for International Business Studies at Texas A&M. Her prior involvement in civic activities includes serving on the Dallas Regional Chamber Board and Executive Committee, Chairing the Dallas March for Babies Walk, and serving on the Boards of Children’s Medical Center, Dallas Center for the Performing Arts Foundation, The Dallas Opera, The Lamplighter School, Dallas Citizens Council, The City Club and the Dallas 2012 Olympic Bid Committee.
Members of the class of 1968 will join Gibson at the ceremony, as the 50th annual class reunion meets in conjunction with the events surrounding Aggie Muster. After Gibson addresses the current and former students, their families and friends, names of each of the deceased will be read aloud during the “Roll Call For The Absent.” Family members and friends representing each of them will respond and light a candle in honor of their loved one.
