Aggies respond to letter from California student

A letter received from a fifth grader in California has sparked an Aggie movement. Signed “Preni,” the letter explains how Preni is writing a report about Texas and is requesting information about Texas A&M for her project.
Cami Steele, social media and marketing intern for the student activities office, was given the letter by an office manager and asked if she wanted to do anything with it. She posted it online and it gained popularity from there. Some Aggies said they will send Preni posters, shirts and stuffed Reveilles.
“We told everybody to send the stuff to our department in Koldus and then we’re going to gather it and send it to her home address,” Steele said.
Steele said her post went on the Facebook page at 3 p.m., and within two hours it had 15,840 views. She said the post has been shared on Twitter and also picked up by the Aggie Network page.
“I think it shows how much the Aggie family cares,” Steele said. “This a fifth grade student. She’s not from here, she’s probably never visited here and it just shows how people want to show how cool A&M can be and how we
embrace everybody.”
Students interested in donating items can drop them off at the student activities office in Koldus by Monday.
