Graduates of Inaugural Bush School EMPSA Class Receive Aggie Rings

December 14, 2017

Dr. Danny Davis giving an EMPSA student his Aggie Ring


The first online Executive Master of Public Service and Administration (EMPSA) class from the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M recently received their Aggie rings. Looking toward graduation, seven of the thirteen students attended Ring Day.

Just as Aggies for years have ordered their Aggie rings after completing the required coursework hours, this first EMPSA class eagerly joined the ranks of those who came before them as they ordered their rings from the Association of Former Students and, after Ring Day, now possess an ever-lasting symbol of their time spent here.

Dr. Danny Davis, Executive Master of Public Service and Administrator Coordinator and Senior Lecturer, was present to personally hand the students their new ring. The Office of Extended Education staff were also present to congratulate students for their accomplishments. Students, faculty, and staff all shared this milestone during a reception following the presentation of rings.

Aggie rings symbolize a student’s accomplishments and dedication to Aggie values, and serve as a physical reminder of entrance into the Aggie family. They are a tradition dating back more than a century. The ring’s design is steeped with symbolism and depicts Texas A&M’s storied history visually.
