Michael Leung ‘19 is an Industrial Distribution major from Greenville, SC. He is the youngest son of Stephen ‘85 and Paula Leung. He has one brother, Daniel ‘17.
Michael is a member of Squadron “Challenger” 17 in the Corps of Cadets.
Michael has fulfilled the roles of both Guidon Bearer and Chaplain within his unit. This year he is the outfit Service Officer, in charge of planning and executing the Squadron’s community service projects. He also has the privilege of being a member of the Ross Volunteer Company, the official Honor Guard for the Governor of Texas. This year he serves as the Meatball Platoon Leader.
Since his freshman year, Michael has had an active role in the annual student-led “5 For Yell” Yell Leader campaign, serving in roles ranging from sign holder to Head of Finance and Assistant Campaign Manager. Michael’s involvement outside the Corps extends to roles as a Breakaway Volunteer, Impact Retreat Counselor, Muster Host, and a Professional Association of Industrial Distribution (PAID) member.
Michael recently completed a summer Distributor Sales internship with ITT-Compact Automation Products in Westminster, SC. While there, he gained hands-on experience in the company’s manufacturing, product management and customer service departments, and accompanied strategic account managers on sales calls to learn ITT’s go-to-market process and strategy.
Upon graduating in December 2019, Michael plans to pursue a career in logistics/supply chain management. His dream is to one day become a franchise operator for Chick-fil-A, either in the U.S. or overseas. A leader in every sense of the word, Michael represents the very best of what it means to be a Texas Aggie. I have no doubt that he will go on to great success in the future and continue to make all of us very proud!
