The largest, oldest and most visible student organization at Texas A&M University — the Corps of Cadets — has selected their senior leadership for the 2023-24 school year.

Four cadets were identified to fill the most senior leadership positions of corps commander, deputy corps commander, chief of staff and sergeant major:

  • Deputy Corps Commander: Klayton House, Athens, Texas .
  • Chief of Staff: Callie Guest, Cypress, Texas.

Cadets complete a thorough selection process that consists of an application and an interview with a panel of peers and staff.

To position the Corps of Cadets for continued and sustained growth over the next several years, the Corps of Cadets will realign the organizational structure beginning with the 2023-24 school year. The realignment of the corps structure provides a greater span of control across the organization while positioning the Corps for long-term, sustainable growth.
