2015 TAMS Alumni Association Scholarship

This year was the first year for the TAMS Alumni Association to participate in TAMS Convocation. While Convocation announces the Second Years’ achievements, we awarded three scholarships to incoming First Years. These awards help defray the costs of the Program Fee now imposed on all students. The recipients:

  • Bihan Jiang, of Grapevine, full program fees ($1300)
  • Frederick Wang, of Frisco, 1/2 program fees ($650)
  • Jagath Vytheeswaran, of Plano, 1/2 program fees ($650)

Thanks to the Alumni donations that made these scholarships possible!

2014 TAMS Alumni Association Scholarship

We awarded the 2014 TAMS Alumni Association Scholarship (which covers the full 2014-2015 TAMS Program Charge) to Emma Holmes, of Allen. Congratulations, Emma – and thank you to all whose generous donations made this possible!

Victoria Barrera, of Pflugerville, came in a close second. Our original intent was to award a single scholarship. We liked Victoria’s application so much, we awarded her a second, smaller scholarship.

Graduation Speakers 2014

The TAMS Alumni Association is on the lookout for speakers for the 2014 TAMS graduation. Since we’re coming up on the 25th anniversary of TAMS, wouldn’t it be great to hear from a member of the founding class? If you’d like to share your 25 years of accumulated nerdly wisdom with your fellow TAMSters, let us know!

Pi Day 2014

Join the TAMS alumni for the first annual Pi Day alumni celebration! March 14 (or 3.14) is the perfect time to get together with your fellow nerds and celebrate the joys of being TAMSters.

The goal is to get TAMS alumni of all classes together on 3.14, in whatever town they happen to be in. This can be as simple as meeting up at a bar, or as elaborate as you wish. If you’d like to host a TAMS Alumni Pi Day party in your neck of the woods, hit the comments and let us know! We’ll do our best to hook you up with the right folks.
