For the 3rd time our Aggie Knights have won the Outstanding College Council of the Year Award. Whoop!
From the Knights of Columbus press release:
The Outstanding College Council of 2012 was Texas A&M University Council 10624 in College Station, Texas. The council members put in hours of volunteer service through a variety of programs, including the following: their efforts in rebuilding the local parish rectory’s garage; transforming a run-down rental property into a home for a single mother and her children to shield them from her abusive ex-husband; providing hundreds of holy cards, religious medals, rosaries, scapulars and copies to the Catechism of the Catholic Church to military personnel deployed in Afghanistan; hosting a number of social events and a youth retreat; standing vigil during a local “40 Days for Life” campaign; helping to organize the “Run for Their Lives” 5K fundraiser that brought in $2,000 for scholarships to help pregnant and parenting students on campus; and held a “Go Roman Week” campaign to recruit new members in the fall semester.Congratulations to the Aggie Knights!
“While many college councils demonstrated impressive achievements this year, to be named an Outstanding College Council is an exceptional distinction and it requires exemplary achievement across the spectrum of program categories,” Supreme Knight Anderson said during the presentation. “After putting their blood, sweat and tears into service projects for their local community, these Knights give new meaning to the phrase ‘building a civilization of love.’”
