The Rammys was held on April 20 in the CJ Davidson Conference Center and recognized many people and organizations.

Grad student Henry Mahome III received the Promising Male Leader of the Year award and his organization IHeartYoSneaks was awarded the Most Spirited Organization and Service Organization of the Year award.

"It feels humbling actually because all we did was work hard and try to get involved on campus in everything we can and in our community at San Angelo and with our communities back home," Mahome said.

He said they are trying to start something good with their organization.

"We are active and strong," Mahome said. "We are passionate about everything we do and we love what we do and we love to help out everyone we can."

Michael Abarca, freshman president of the Rams Ultimate Frisbee organization said they won the Rising Ram award as well as the Special Interest Organization of the Year.

"It feels pretty good, we made a big difference on campus and we were able to give a lot of former athletes a sport to be a part of again," Abarca said.

Abarca said people have came and tried out ultimate frisbee and loved it.

"The community we were able to build is awesome," Abarca said.

Abarca said they have been able to help on and off campus with volunteer projects.

"It’s just really neat that we were able to get recognized," Abarca said. "We look forward to be being able to make a difference in the future."
