August 14 marked Prairie View A&M University’s 137th year of creation. It was on August 14, 1876, when the fifteenth Texas Legislature created the Agriculture and Mechanical College of Texas at Bryan and the Alta Vista College for Colored Youth on the Kirby Plantation. After several name changes, including Prairie View Agricultural and Mechanical College, legislature endorsed Prairie View A&M University with legislative action on August 15, 1973, thus making the “A&M” a symbol for state. Your prayers and encouragement are welcomed for the health and well-being of Esel Bell, Ernestine Carreathers, Irene Davis, Cheryl Edmond, B. J. Freeman, David Kirkpatrick, James Poindexter, Willie Smith, Mary Ann Stubblefield, March Tramble, Ella Weaver and Douglas Woolfolk. May God’s peace be with you!
