Aggies in Omaha: how one is making a difference

OMAHA, Neb. (KBTX) - Its another busy day in the Intensive Care Unit for fourth generation Aggie Dr. Lisa Schlitzkus

"My great grandfather, my grandfather, my mother and then myself all attended Texas A&M," Schlitzkus said.

Schlitzkus, a native of Rosenburg, Texas and member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2002, is a trauma surgeon at Nebraska Medicine in Omaha.

"Overall just great memories of A&M. I was there for the first maroon-out which now living in Nebraska is a little hush-hush because the first team we beat for maroon-out was Nebraska"

Schlitzkus made the most of her time in Aggieland, becoming heavily involved in the Wiley Lecture Series, Student Government Association and earning a Buck Weirus Spirit Award.

After attending Med School in Houston, with stops in North Carolina and California in between, Schlitzkus now calls the Midwest home

"Its a major city, has about a million people in it. So its not as small as people think, but its not LA, its not Philadelphia, its not DC, so it very much has that small town feel," Schlitzkus said.

Whats not to love about the place where her Aggies have a chance to win it all

"I think the city is going to end up falling in love with all of our traditions and things we do and how we act and just our group in general. So I'm hoping to see a good turnout from our Aggie family," Schlitzkus said.
