BRYAN, Texas — Ags Reach is a Texas A&M student organization founded in 2020 to support Project Reach and engage students in the REACH Vision.
Reagan Isbell, COO of Ags REACH, explained how their health fair is indispensable in the Brazos Valley.
“We have a lot of empowering health resources that we want to distribute,” Isbell said.
“We’re just trying to reach everyone as this is a completely free event.”
As Ags REACH continues to make its mark on and off campus, this student-led program wouldn’t be possible without the founder behind it all – Max Gerall, who began reaching after graduating in 2018.
Gerall said his vision begins with ensuring everyone from all walks of life can have equal access to health care.
“The REACH project also offers training in ESL and GED, we [also] doing financial literacy and entrepreneurial education, but especially home ownership,” Gerall said.
“The idea is that if we can help everyone access these resources – for free and at leisure, we can help them realize their full potential and their future generations simultaneously.”
Like Gerall, from one visionary to another hoping to make a difference in people’s lives, Greg Johnson, founder of the Triumphant Trends Aspiring Motivational Group, helps organizations like REACH inspire young people who are looking for a better life than they don’t. can…even when money may be an issue.
“Some things cost a little money, we try to encourage them in light of that so that when they do it in their youth they can perfect that later in life and walk with confidence,” said Johnson.
“It feels good to walk with confidence.”
The Ags REACH Health Fair included information on the Prenatal Clinic, Diabetes, Heart Health, Nutrition, and Exercise, to name a few.
Isbell said it’s about caring for the people who have given so much to Texas A&M for them.
“We’re the ones who have the free time and the passion and the attention — so it’s really cool to develop those things,” Isbell said.
“We have nursing students, we have public health students, who want to use what they learn in school to be able to help the people who help us at A&M.”
