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 will meet at Antone’s – Austin’s Home of the Blues – located at 305 E. 5th St. in downtown Austin. The program includes music and a talk on the “The History of Antone’s” delivered by Susan Antone (Clifford Antone’s sister) and Will Bridges. Read more here.
