Sam Houston State University’s chapter of the National Agri-Marketing Association has now been an active organization for six years and has made tremendous progress in its overall success and accomplishments. “The measure of a life is its service,” is not only the motto that is followed by the school but one of our personal mottos as well. One of our other mottos is “connect your opportunities,” we encourage our members to participate in all events and programs to ensure that they are making connections. While the group has continued to focus on recruitment the past year, they have also worked hard at becoming more organized and providing programs that add value to the members professionally, philanthropically, and socially.
