Texas A&M University-Commerce Distinguished Alumni Symposium Presents
"What Is the Purpose of an Education?"
Leaders from public and private schools as well as business leaders have agreed to be facilitators and panelists in what guarantees to be an informative and educational program. They will spend the day, sharing their own views of education with superintendents, principals, university faculty, students and the public. As these leaders discuss the purpose of an education, attendees will be given the opportunity to ponder these ideas and share their own views.
