This week, ASG had a guest speaker, Major General John Howard Burris, a Texas State and ASG alumni spoke about his experiences at Texas State 60 years ago. General Burris passed down a key he received 57 years ago to his grandson, Foster Burris. Foster is already stepping into his grandfather’s footsteps as an ASG senate member and sophomore here at Texas State.
Foster feels very blessed to be handed down his grandfather’s legacy and told us some advice General Burris gave him when coming to Texas State.
“He’s always urged me to get involved not just in school and in extracurricular activities, but beyond that just to be very involved and dedicated to anything you do in life.”
- Foster Burris
Foster is not only a member of ASG, but is also a Phi Delta Theta alumni, and a part of College Republicans at Texas State.
So whether it is becoming a part of the student government, or joining another organization of your preference, remember not only is it important to get involved, but to always give it your all bobcats!
