Forever A Lion

The Forever a Lion initiative is a program designed to turn Greenville Lions into A&M-Commerce Lion...

By offering current and future GISD high school graduates an excellent pathway to learn more about the first-class academic programs, outstanding faculty and exciting student life at A&M Commerce. 

A&M Commerce and GISD are committed to student engagement, lifelong learning and making a positive impact on our students, our community and the world in which we live.  

"I am very excited about what this partnership will do for the students of GISD. I am a firm believer that education opens doors, provides options, and leads to greater success and happiness in life," GISD Superintendent Sharon Boothe said.  


To introduce them to campus life, students and their parents/families are invited to special tours and orientation sessions at the university. They also receive a select number of tickets for select events and athletic competitions. The A&M Commerce Admissions Office and Greenville High School counselors have put on a series of events to help students and families understand the financial aid process and how to fill out forms, including the FAFSA.  

“A&M-Commerce is working to keep higher education affordable and accessible,” A&M Commerce President Mark Rudin said. “Financial obstacles should not block ambitious students and teachers from achieving their goals.  We are pleased to expand our partnership with Greenville ISD to five programs that benefit both high school students and GISD teachers.

The Forever A Lion Program has grown over time to include five components:
