Graduating from college is a major accomplishment for anyone. However, for a first-generation college student graduation can mean a shift in the trajectory for an entire family. This pin is an indication of the academic and professional accomplishments in your life that can set an example for those who will follow. 
Wearing this pin signifies that you are celebrating and supporting the first-generation student journey, as you yourself, are the first out of your family to embark on this path of higher learning.   
As you prepare to serve within the profession by changing lives in your community, we ask that you wear this pin proudly as a first-generation Aggie Pharmacist!
We encourage you to ask a loved one to pin it on your white coat and thank them for the support they have offered throughout your academic career.
