Alex Rye

Student Historian

I am Alex Rye; I am a current student at Texas A&M University, majoring in Finance. I became aware of the racism and injustices of the African-American community as a young kid, as I moved to a predominantly white neighborhood and went to a high school made as a “white flight” school in the late ’60s. I had experienced racism from other students, and it made me aware that there is still much work to be done for equal rights. I enjoy playing the trumpet and hanging with friends.
