Please welcome the Class of 2016 into the Alumni Association!
This is a great group of TAMSters. The wonderful ceremony included a moving speech by Distinguished Alumni Speaker Edward Requenez.
Interested in attending the alumni reception this June, but didn’t get an invite? Send an email to the alumni coordinator, Meaghan Hildinger, for details.
A big thanks to all for hosting and attending the 3.14th annual TAMS Pi Day. The Alumni Association thanks you for making this happen. TAMS Pi Day is a unique opportunity for alumni of all ages to gather and celebrate being a TAMSter. If you missed it this year, please do consider hosting and/or attending next year.
And if you’d like to donate to the Alumni Association*, please visit http://www.tamsalumni.org/donations/
For gifts of $100 and above, you will also receive pi(e). Rachel Malone, TAMS class of 2002 and owner of Archer Custom Designs, has designed an awesome pi(e) plate as a thank you gift for your donation. When you donate, we will reach out to get your mailing address for plate shipping.
Hooray for Ed! And – by association: Hooray for us!
See the press release here for the serious stuff, and see below for more details on the research that won Ed Boyden (Class of 1995) one of the 2016 Breakthrough awards.
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:
Thanks to the Alumni donations that made these scholarships possible!
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.
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!
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.
Yes, we used to have a site. Yes, it died a long time ago. And yes, we’re just now getting to a replacement. (Sorry.)
In the near term we anticipate hosting brief information here on official TAMS AA business, as well as providing a place for alumni to show their appreciation (via a donation).
