A Gift To Remember

For Yvonne Clements and her late husband Robert, the friendships forged at Texas A&M University-Commerce were for a lifetime. The couple met on a blind date while both were students at “Old ET,” and more than 50 years later they maintained strong ties to the university that helped bring them together.

With the recent passing of Robert Clements, Yvonne, along with her daughter Carol Ann, commemorated Robert’s life and passion for “Old ET” by establishing the Robert S. Clements Memorial Endowment for students studying agricultural science like he had so many years ago. An avid rancher, Robert loved to be out on his tractor working the land, and Yvonne knows her husband would be proud to support students pursuing the same dreams he did, students with big hearts for A&M-Commerce.
