To commemorate their lasting dedication to Texas A&M, Carolyn and her husband, Dr. Tom Adair ’57, have recently established a significant planned gift for the Department of Student Activities, the Texas A&M Coaching Academy, and the Department of Physics, ensuring that 100% of their estate would benefit Texas A&M University.
“We don’t have children of our own, so giving all of our assets to benefit our adopted Aggie family made sense,” Carolyn said. “As the university grows, we hope these gifts enhance programs and provide students an opportunity to receive a world-renowned education.”
The Dr. Carolyn M. Adair ’69 Directorship in Student Activities will be used to support the Department of Student Activities, including Student Government, in areas such as staff leadership and development programs, pilot programs, and new initiatives.
Carolyn now leads a post-retirement career importing olive oil to the United States. Amici Olive Oil, which translated means “friends,” is aptly named as Carolyn and Tom Adair have generously given their life’s work to shaping the pathways to success for countless Aggie students. Carolyn now spends a good portion of her time living in Italy where she exclusively manages Amici Italian Imports.
