Bailey Harris ’16 is a Psychology major with a minor in Military Studies from Weimar, Texas. She is the daughter of Jason and Tracy Harris.

Bailey was originally assigned to Company B-1, and served as the outfit’s recruiting corporal her sophomore year. During her junior year Bailey was a member of the Third Brigade Staff, serving as the Recruiting Sergeant. She has served as the Commander of Company C-1 for the 2015-16 academic year.

Bailey is involved many other organizations on and off the Quad. She was a member of the Ranger Challenge Team her freshman year, and Darling Recruiting Company her sophomore year. Bailey was also awarded the Army Maximum Physical Fitness Test Award twice, as well as a Texas A&M Distinguished Student Award. She participated in the Corps International Excursion to Turkey in 2014, and spent the summer of 2014 in Mongolia for the Army’s Cultural Understanding and Leadership Program (CULP). As part of the program she participated in Khaan Quest 2014, an exercise that integrates militaries from around the world in order to better understand foreign military practices and engage in humanitarian projects.

After graduation in May 2016, Bailey will commission into the US Army as a Signal Corps officer. She will also marry Matthew Marshall ’16, of Company A-1 over the summer.

Bailey has been a superb cadet and has always shown a dedication to hard work and leadership in every role she has served in. She leads by example in all that she does, and inspires others to follow her lead and exceed the standard in all that they do. I know she will continue her superb dedication to excellence as an officer in the US Army upon graduation. Bailey is going to make all of us very proud in all that she does in the future.
