The award recognizes graduates of the college for outstanding leadership and significant contributions in agriculture, natural resources, life sciences or related areas.
Glockzin earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Texas A&M as a poultry science major in 1972.
Seven years after finishing his undergrad, Glockzin began his construction company which builds, develops and manages over 44 apartment properties in over 25 cities across the state of Texas.
Not only is he dedicated to his profession, but he also spends a great amount of time giving back to his community in many ways. He is a major contributor to St. Joseph’s Catholic Church where he currently serves on the finance board. He also assisted with the building of the athletic field for St. Joseph’s Catholic School and is an advisor for the building committee at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. He even contributed to the Building Campaign for the Rehabilitative Care Facility of St. Joseph’s Hospital.
“Emanuel has been a successful Aggie, committing his time, service and financial support to his beloved Texas A&M University, his community and church,” said Larry L. Boleman, Associate Vice Chancellor and Dean for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
Glockzin is also a big supporter of Texas agriculture, especially 4-H, FFA and several livestock shows. He serves on the Brazos County Youth Commercial Heifer Show and Sale Committee and the Junior Commercial Steer Committee for the Houston Livestock Show.
“Despite carving out a career in the field of building construction and residential development, Emanuel has never lost his passion for agriculture,” said David Caldwell, professor and head of the Department of Poultry Science.
Glockzin continues to support his alma mater, his community, and youth through the many boards and committees he serves on.
“I have personally dealt with Emanuel in business matters in the past years,” said Mark Humphrey ’82, Regional Chairman at Prosperity Bank, “and I have the utmost respect for how he conducts himself not only professionally, but also while serving our community.”
