Abstract:

When the South Texas State Teaches College first opened its doors 75 years ago, there was only one academic building in the middle of a cotton field, no paved roads, dormitories, or even a cafeteria. Today, the Javelinas boast a proud tradition, distinguished alumni, and an unmatched passion for education. As it looks toward the certain trials of the future, Texas A&M-Kingsville shines with promise, confident in the knowledge that no obstacle is too great that the Javelina cannot triumph over. Robert B. Cousins, who had served as the Texas State Superintendent of education in South Texas, was given the mission of training teachers in South Texas to raise the standards of education and prepare the future leaders of tomorrow. Through 75 years, Texas A&M-Kingsville has overcome five name changes, lackluster state financing, and fiscal prejudices, to create a premier university in a rural, bilingual, and multicultural region.--Amazon.com.
