Carolyn Lohman To Receive E. King Gill Award
Carolyn Lohman, a longtime advocate for CEHD students, will receive the E. King Gill Award on Nov. 4, for her years of service toward the university. The 12th Man Foundation at Kyle Field will honor her during the Texas A&M-Auburn football game.
The E. King Gill award not only honors supporters who have continued to help the Foundation maintain its mission but also to those who have given commitments as volunteer advocates of the athletic program through service opportunities and leadership.
Ms. Lohman has been a longtime supporter of all things Texas A&M for decades along with her husband Tommie ’59, who passed away in 2012. Their contributions to students in both the College of Education and Human Development and Aggie Athletics led to the opening of a number of campus sights including the Lohman Learning Community, housed in CEHD, the Foundation’s Major Gifts Office, and the Lohman Center, located at the Bright Football Complex at Kyle Field.
She talked about being honored for the award and how grateful she was for the opportunities to share with others.
“Being honored for this award means that my husband and I have had the opportunity, and we took it, to make a difference in the lives of students and student-athletes,” Lohman said. “Just as they have the opportunity to use their athletic and academic abilities to get an education that will impact the rest of their lives.”
For over 13 years, the Lohman Learning Community has helped mentor large cohorts of first-year students pursuing education majors adjust to college life. The learning center helps students get connected with study groups and exposes them to various opportunities around campus like tutoring, OPAS, and the athletic programs.
“It is very important to me that we do all we can to retain our students during the very difficult transition to a large university,” she said.
The program is intended to help freshman also learn to better develop their time management, study skills and hands-on activities related and dedicated to their majors.
“My favorite part of the program is that networks begin to develop with other students in the same fields of study and they encourage one another to stay the course,” she said. “If I can convey my confidence that any student who is accepted into A&M can graduate from A&M and I believe they can, then I feel that I have impacted their lives in a positive way.”
Ms. Lohman will be honored at Kyle Field on Saturday, Nov. 4. More information can be found on the 12th Man Foundation award page.
