Continuing Their Family Traditions
The Class of 2023 includes 50 students following family members into ’RooNation. Many have siblings, cousins, aunts, and uncles who attended Austin College recently or years ago. Space doesn’t allow all of those students to be shown but pictured below are those students whose legacy connections are parents and/or grandparents (and showed up for the photo).
Two of the freshmen—Grant Gilbert of Sherman and Jacob Meloni of Schertz, Texas—each have nine ’Roo relatives before them, each including one parent, two or three grandparents, and an array of aunts and uncles—plus a sibling for Grant. As “most legacied,” they placed the Class of 2023 flag at Opening Convocation in August 2019.
