Eating a taco at cowboy breakfast 2023

SAA kicked off rodeo season this morning with one of our community's favorite traditions — Cowboy Breakfast! On the cool, crisp morning, hundreds of cowboys and cowgirls made their way to The Academy's Moody Refectory for some delicious breakfast tacos, biscuits and gravy, french toast sticks, coffee, and hot chocolate. Students, parents, grandparents, alumni, friends, faculty, and staff all gathered 'round to enjoy and celebrate our Texan roots. Whether it was grubin' together, warming up by the campfire, listening to some country western tunes, practicing steer ropin', or cuddling with some adorable puppies, everyone celebrated cowboy culture The Academy Way!
