Create the Matthew Gaines Memorial
Petition Background (Preamble):
He compelled the members to pass Senate Bill No. 276, and those who supported the bill illuminated him as their leader.
Texas A&M University, Prarie View A&M University, and The University of Texas are all direct benefactors of his relentless dedication to public education; however he goes unmentioned in our histories.
Texas A&M, an amazing institution that prides itself on leadership, integrity, and many other things Matthew Gaines stood for, should be the first to recognize his contributions to our history as the first public higher education institution in Texas.
An educational institution that prides itself on honesty, integrity, respect, leadership, service, and excellence should recognize those who brought about its foundation.
A recognition of the diversity of our past will allow for an acceptance of diversity in our future and place us in a better position to meet "Vision 2020."
