Letter from the MSC President
I hope you have been able to stay safe and healthy throughout these past several weeks. If I haven’t yet met you, my name is Mark Sterling and I am a senior business honors and management major from Mansfield, Texas. I am finishing up my year as the Chair of MSC Aggie Leaders of Tomorrow with experience in MSC Hospitality, MSC Spencer Leadership Conference, and the MSC marketing resource team.
As this school year comes to an end and the 71st MSC Officer Team prepares to lead, I believe it is important we recognize and give thanks to the leaders who have paved the way for us. I know each of the incoming chairs and officers looks up to their predecessor as a role model and guide and the MSC is a better and more inclusive place because of their consistent effort and dedication.
My involvement in the Memorial Student Center has truly defined the time I have spent as a student at Texas A&M University. As a freshman in MSC Aggie Leaders of Tomorrow, I quickly realized the mission, vision and values of the MSC are not just words pasted on the wall—they are infused in everything our committees and resource teams do, serving as constant reminders to strive for excellence. Through my participation in our committees’ programs as well as my experience working with incredible officers, I have learned invaluable lessons that will stay with me far beyond my years on campus. The connections and friendships I’ve made these past three years with other MSC students and professional staff members have provided me with guidance, inspiration and laughs. Ultimately, I know I am a better person simply because of the MSC.
I am looking forward to seeing the amazing programs our committees will be able to produce and the impact that each program will have on campus life. This year may not have ended as we expected, but our members and advisors once again proved the Memorial Student Center is capable of adapting and overcoming unforeseen obstacles. This is a special place that has become a home to so many students, and it has managed to maintain that sense of community throughout this challenging semester. I hope you are as excited as we are for the upcoming year!
Thanks and Gig ‘em,
Mark Sterling ‘21
71st MSC President
