ABOUT OUR HONOREE
A native of Terrell, Texas, Rick graduated from Texas A&M with a B.B.A. in Finance in 1970. While there, he was a member of the Corps of Cadets and a manager on the football team. After being commissioned, he served in the U.S. Army from 1970-74. While overseas, he obtained an M.S. degree from the University of Arkansas.

He attended St. Mary’s University School of Law from 1974-77, graduating third in his class. After graduation, he served as a briefing attorney for the Texas Supreme Court for one year and then started his long and distinguished practice in Dallas. In 1992, he was one of the founders of Hallett & Perrin, P.C., where he specializes in handling complex tort litigation.

Rick has remained connected to A&M in many different ways over the years, both financially and through the donation of his time. He has served on the Dean’s Development Council for the College of Education and Human Development for more than 30 years, being its chair in 2017. He and his wife, Sue, endowed an FEA scholarship for a minority student desiring to be a teacher. They have made lead gifts to the college’s Coaching Academy, as well as a program to assist students with emergency needs. Also important to them over the years has been supporting the college’s annual awards and public recognition of outstanding teachers across the state. Rick is an advocate for the Hagler Institute for Advanced Study, which for the past seven years has attracted some of the world’s foremost scientists, engineers and scholars to spend a year at A&M collaborating with the faculty and students in solving some of the world’s toughest challenges. He is also active in advancing the A&M School of Law.

Rick has been very involved in support of athletics over the years. He is a member of the Lettermen’s Association, serving as president in 2003. He is also a member of the 12th Man Foundation, serving as its chair in 2010. He and Sue have made numerous capital gifts for the athletic facilities and are currently members of the Dallas Champions Council.

A member of the Association of Former Students, Rick is a frequent Muster speaker. He is a 2007 Fish Camp Namesake and was inducted into the Corps of Cadets Hall of Honor in 2016.

Rick is active in his church in many roles, including that of being a ruling elder and an adult Sunday School leader. He volunteers monthly to serve the indigent at the Bridge in Dallas, as well as perform pro bono legal services to the needy.

He and his wife have been married 48 years. They have two children, Kristi Lynn Cole ’93 and Robert Rickman ’96, and five grandchildren.

“When I graduated, little did I realize how having just undergone the Aggie experience would establish the foundation for success in all areas of my life. The Aggie Core Values have been guideposts in my life, and I share my gratitude for this by being a constant ambassador for A&M and giving back in as many ways as possible to the school I so love.”

ABOUT THE JIMMY WILLIAMS DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD
James Wishart “Jimmy” Williams was born on September 13, 1895, in Hamilton, Texas. A descendant of pre-Revolutionary War Americans, he graduated from Hamilton High School in 1913 and went on to attend the Agricultural & Mechanical College of Texas from 1913 to 1919 with two one-year interruptions. Mr. Williams considered himself to be part of the Class of 1918 and graduated in 1919 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. He served in the United States Army from November 1917 to February 1919 and was discharged with the rank of Second Lieutenant.

After briefly working for the Delta County Engineering Department, Mr. Williams joined Austin Brothers Bridge Company in 1920. His first large assignment was the Corpus Christi Causeway, built in 1921. Over the next 50 years, Mr. Williams rose through the ranks of Austin Bridge and Associated Companies (now Austin Industries), subsequently serving on its Board of Directors.

Mr. Williams was elected president of the Downtown Quarterback Club in Dallas in 1954. Known as “Skinny” to his many Aggie friends, he also served as president of the Dallas A&M Club, District Vice President of The Association of Former Students, and on the Executive Committee of The Association. Additionally, he served on the Athletic Council, the governing body of the Texas A&M Athletic Department at the time.

Mr. Williams also served as an elder at Lakeview Christian Church in Lake Highlands. He was well known for his modesty, his concern for other people, and his work ethic. Never one to boast about himself or his accomplishments, he enjoyed an outstanding life and career that was enhanced by his wife Pauline, their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Mr. Williams passed away in Dallas on October 14, 1970.

In his honor, the Dallas A&M Club began a custom that recognizes the ideals and integrity that Mr. Williams personified. The Jimmy Williams Distinguished Service Award is presented to an Aggie from the Dallas area who has demonstrated commitment to career and family, contributions to the local community, and devotion to Texas A&M University.

The Jimmy Williams Distinguished Service Award Banquet enables the Dallas A&M Club to acknowledge and celebrate the success, dedication, and contributions of not only one of its own, but also of Texas A&M University and all that it represents.

Meeting Schedule:
8:00am: Doors open for networking;
8:15am: Meeting called to order, introductions;

Aggie Roundtable offers an opportunity for Texas A&M former students to network and share leads on potential prospects/clients. The Roundtable began in the Fall of 1993; and through the guidance of its early directors, has blossomed into untold amounts of revenue for companies led by Aggies.

This group serves two primary missions:
1. Facilitate business networking among Aggies;
2. Help those Ags in transition find new jobs.

Bring plenty of business cards, brochures, and other literature to display on the table at the front of the meeting area designated for that purpose. You will receive the opportunity to tell the group who you are, what you do, and what an ideal client for you might be. Our mission is to facilitate business networking and to help those Ags in transition. So don’t be shy about telling other Aggies how you can help their business, or be helped.

Optional donations of $5.00 per person, per meeting are kindly accepted and greatly appreciated - with net proceeds helping to fund Dallas A&M Club scholarships for selected students from the area who will be attending Texas A&M University.

Speaker Biography
Porter S. Garner III ’79, President and CEO of The Association of Former Students, became The Association’s seventh professional Executive Director in The Association’s history in 2000. He joined The Association in 1981 as Field Director, where he logged countless miles and hours in assisting A&M Clubs across the state, nation and world. Years spent interacting with Aggies one on one across the Aggie Network and witnessing their devotion to Texas A&M and Texas Aggies shaped Porter’s vision for the organization, compelling him to create a culture built on a foundation of service and teamwork. Under his leadership, The Association has expanded its reach and relevance to the Aggie Network, raised the largest Annual Fund in the organization’s history and enhanced the look, feel, and capabilities of the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center, creating the premier alumni center. Porter earned a B.B.A. in marketing from Texas A&M in 1979 and served as President of the Student Aggie Club while in school. In 2006 he was selected as a Fish Camp namesake in recognition of his many contributions to Texas A&M. His love of Texas A&M was instilled in him by his father, Porter S. Garner, Jr. ’45. Porter and his wife, Lisa ’91 have three children: Claire ’21, Callie and Porter IV.
