Corps names next commander, leaders

The Corps of Cadets announced on Tuesday its new student leaders for the 2014-2015 school year.
David Trigg, the newly selected Corps commander for the 2014-2015 year, said he is excited to serve the Corps next year as commander.
“The key leaders selected from the Class of 2015 are all exceptional men and women,” Trigg said. “It will be a privilege to work with them to positively impact the Corps and Texas A&M.”
Eric Gil, current Corps commander, said he hopes the Class of 2014 has helped make the way smoother for the upcoming class of leaders.
“The Class of 2015 is the beginning of our legacy,” Gil said. “I have full faith and confidence that they surpass everyone’s expectations.”
Gil said the new Corps leaders will have to learn to lead one of the largest Corps of Cadets that A&M has seen. Current projections put next year’s Corps membership between 2,550 and 2,600 cadets.
“The goals of this next group of Corps leaders is to sustain the improvements that were made this year and continue to determine where new improvements need to be made,” Gil said.
Trigg said he hopes to leave the Corps bigger and better than when he joined.
“My goals for the Corps next year are entirely based on serving and impacting the lives of cadets and students,” Trigg said. “I hope to build on the great strides we have made with academics, professional development, recruiting and retention.”
Next year, Trigg said there would be two deputy Corps commanders, a first for them.
“The two deputy Corps commanders are new this year due to the growing need for internal and external focus,” Trigg said. “The sheer magnitude of the many responsibilities the current deputy corps commander has internally and externally become too taxing. With two deputy corps commanders, the Corps will be able to develop our special units and ROTC connections while maintaining a strong and positive relationship with student organizations and the rest of the student body.”
Brig. Gen. Joe Ramirez, Corps commandant, shared the list on his public Facebook page. The post concluded with the commandant congratulating the new Corps leaders.
“Congratulations again to all,” Ramirez posted. “We look forward to another successful school year next year for our Corps with this exceptional cadet command team!”
The shift in Corps command will take effect on May 3, 2014.
