Several dignitaries were in the Rio Grande Valley today to formally dedicate the $40 million Texas A&M McAllen Higher Education Center.

During the ceremony this afternoon at the Tres Lagos Campus, Governor Greg Abbott, Chancellor of Texas A&M John Sharp, as well as A&M President Michael K. Young were present. The 65,000 square foot facility features state of the art labs, classrooms, and collaborative work spaces for students.

“This is an investment in the leaders of tomorrow. Leaders who will keep Texas the most prosperous state in our entire nation.” said the Governor.

Texas A&M McAllen started with just 19 students and currently has more than 200 students enrolled and that number is expected to grow rapidly.
