The Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Greater Austin
 

Welcome to PBKAAGA!


The Phi Beta Kappa Alumni Association of Greater Austin (PBKAAGA) was formed by members of PBK, those elected at the Alpha of Texas and throughout the country, to promote the academic values of the society in Austin and the surrounding region. In addition to organizing social and intellectual events, including a lecture and reception twice a year, PBKAAGA has created endowments to fund scholarships for local high school students who will soon enter college and for adult students who are returning to college to complete their B.A. or B.S. degrees.  PBKAAGA welcomes any PBK member living in the Greater Austin area to join.

We are pleased to announce that Shirley Franklin has agreed to speak at our Fall 2014 General Meeting on November 9. Professor Franklin is the former two-term Mayor of Atlanta and current visiting professor at the LBJ School of Public Affairs. Professor Franklin, who served as Mayor from 2002 to 2010, was the first female to hold the post and became the first African-American woman to be elected mayor of any major Southern city.



As the academic year begins, the PBKAAGA wants to take a moment to recognize our members, and especially our donors, for what they make possible:  support of some of the finest students in the area.  Every membership make a difference.  Thank you, donors!
