Max Bartee ’20 is a Marketing major from Austin, Texas and the son of Todd and Robin Bartee. Originally from F-1, he is currently serving as the Career Readiness Officer for the Corps on Corps Staff.
Max is highly involved in student activities both on and off the Quad. He founded his own student organization called Aggie Cinema Appreciation and is a founding member of the Aggie Sendoff tradition. In the Corps, he is also a member of the Parsons Mounted Cavalry, the Duncan Dining Advisory Board and O.R. Simpson Honor Society.
Max had never ridden a horse before joining Parsons Mounted Cavalry, but after riding five hours a week for two and a half years, he says that his skills have significantly improved. “The greatest skill that riding has taught me is to remain calm in stressful situations,” Max said. He also enjoys the many friendships that he has made throughout the Corps because of the Cavalry.
As the Corps’ Career Readiness Officer, Max ensures that every cadet is prepared to enter the workforce upon graduation. “Being in charge of career readiness has allowed me to become more prepared for my own career and life after college. I am exposed to all of the opportunities that A&M provides us and have been able to take advantage of many of them. The most rewarding part of this job is when a cadet comes up to me and says that something that I did helped them get a job or internship,” Max said.
Max has excelled academically and is the recipient of the Corps 21 and Mays Business School Scholarships. Max has helped other cadets succeed academically by being a member of the O.R. Simpson Honor Society, where he tutors fellow cadets.
After graduation in May of 2020, Max would like to work in the start-up industry in his hometown of Austin. “My last few internships have been with small companies and I love the wide range of jobs that this allows for as well as the fast-paced environment that it provides,” he said. After working for a few years, Max intends to get his MBA and use the skills that he has learned to help other small companies succeed.
Max has made a positive impact on the Corps during his time as a cadet and we know he will continue to be a huge success in all of his future endeavors. We wish him all the best!
