Reid Joseph ’14 is an Industrial Distribution major who was born in Dallas, Texas and graduated from high school in Springdale, Arkansas. He is the son of Robin and Tom Joseph ’83, a former member of Squadron 11 and Head Yell Leader. Reid is serving as the Student Body President of Texas A&M for the 2013 – 2014 school year.
Active within the Corps of Cadets, Reid is a member of Squadron 17 and is a Ross Volunteer. He was also named the Outstanding Freshman in the Corps for 2010 – 2011.
Outside the Corps, Reid has served as a Maroon Coat – student leaders from across campus who enhance the impact of the Texas A&M Foundation through ambassadorship, stewardship and selfless service. He has also been a member of the Aggie Muster Committee, Fish Aides, Traditions Council, Abbott Family Leadership Conference (AFLC) and the Professional Association for Industrial Distribution.
Reid is the first member of the Corps to serve as Student Body President in 22 years. He plans to spend the year connecting with students and with organizations, encouraging students to participate in service projects and providing support for students who are veterans – an area he believes should be a priority.
Reid will serve out the entire school year as Student Body President, and will graduate in December 2014, with aspirations of a career in Technical Sales.
Reid is an exceptional young man who is proudly representing the Corps in one of the most high profile student positions on campus. He has had a huge impact on both the Corps of Cadets and Texas A&M University since he’s been here, and he continues to strive for excellence for himself and his fellow students in all that he does. A young man who is mature beyond his years, he has learned to balance the challenges of being a cadet with serving his university and community in a superb manner. Certainly not everyone could handle such responsibility, but Reid handles the daily responsibility of his position in both the Corps and the university in a cool, calm, positive manner. I have no doubt that Reid will continue to serve the Corps and the University in an admirable way, and that he will go on to great success upon graduation. I’m very proud of Reid and all that he represents for our Corps and our student body. Truly a leader of character who embodies the values of Honor, Integrity, Discipline, and Selfless Service that we all seek and expect from our very best.
