“If there is an A&M man in one hundred miles of you, you are expected to get together, eat a little, and live over the days you spent at the A&M College of Texas.”
The Wharton County A&M Club hosts Aggie Muster each year on April 21. It rotates between El Campo, Wharton, and East Bernard.
For more information on the Muster tradition, check out the Association of Former Students’ Muster site.

COVID Information and Contingency Plan
As of now, the Wharton County A&M Club board of directors feels that by April 21st, enough vaccines will have been distributed that we can safely hold an in-person Muster with mask-wearing and social distancing alterations in place.
If local case counts and hospitalizations increase between now and then, or if authorities further restrict gatherings, we may be forced to transition to a virtual Muster like we did in 2020. In that case, we will of course make all relevant information available via mailing lists, social media, and other means.
Even if we have Muster in-person, we will still be live-streaming the ceremony for those who would rather not attend for any reason, including if they have not yet received COVID vaccinations.
Please sign up for our mailing list to ensure you’re notified if Muster plans change.
Wharton County Aggie Muster 2020 – A Virtual Success
Aggie Muster 2020 was held virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, and is available for re-watch here. It wasn’t perfect, but it was still pretty great. Guest speaker Brandon Leone ’06 really delivered, despite the challenges.
Tickets were not required, but we still have a scholarship program to fund (we’re giving away $30,000 to over 20 A&M students from Wharton County this year!), so donations in lieu of tickets are greatly appreciated.
For questions and additional information, please contact Robin Waters Hensley ’03, email@example.com, (979) 541-9004.
