Polly Krueger Award
The measure of a university's distinction and influence depends greatly upon the achievements of its alumni and the position they earn for themselves in their respective communities and fields of endeavor. To recognize these outstanding leaders in our area, the San Antonio A&M Club has established the C.C. "Polly" Krueger Award.
The purpose of this award is to recognize and honor San Antonio A&M Club members who have made significant contributions to our community and whose accomplishments and careers have brought credit to Texas A&M University. In addition to honoring these members, the award spotlights their achievements and thereby increases public awareness of the many distinguished local A&M men and women.
In establishing the award, it is recognized that these awards are given for excellence of service in the community, the San Antonio A&M Club, and Texas A&M University, and that no compromise diminishing the significance of the awards will be made.
