Shaquille Gould ’15 is a Supply Chain Management major from Killeen and the son of Lestrod and Jeanette Gould. He and his family are originally from St. John, Antigua – a small island in the Caribbean. Shaquille currently serves as the First Sergeant of Squadron 2 for the 2013 – 2014 school year.

Active within the Corps, Shaquille is a member of the Ross Volunteer Company and the O.R. Simpson Honor Society. In addition, he served as Recruiting Corporal and Public Relations Corporal his sophomore year. Shaquille was elected by the student body to serve as a Senior Yell Leader for the 2014 – 2015 school year.

Outside the Corps, Shaquille is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity and has served as the Community Service Chair, Social Chair, and Keeper of Records. He is also a member of the National Pan-Hellenic Council and serves as the Parliamentarian of the Executive Board. Shaquille is a member of Aggies for Christ and is also a new member of Future Former Students.

During his time at A&M, Shaquille has been a Fish Camp counselor, a member of the Texas A&M Century Singers, a program advisor for the Maximizing Educational Development through Academic & Leadership Skills (MEDALS) Conference, a delegate for the Southwestern Black Student Leadership Conference, a member of the Distinguished Gentlemen’s Club, and a public school mentor through the Guide Right Mentoring Program.

Shaquille will graduate in May 2015 and will pursue a career in Supply Chain Management or possibly attend graduate school for Sports Management. Shaquille has certainly had a very well-rounded experience during his time in the Corps and at Texas A&M University. He is actively involved both on and off the quad, and has demonstrated a clear ability to lead within every organization he has joined. His election as one of the Senior Yell Leaders for next year only punctuates his determination and enthusiasm as a cadet, as well as the respect he enjoys from his fellow cadets and students. I’m very proud of Shaquille and all he has accomplished. I know he will do a great job as a Texas A&M Yell Leader next year, and will no doubt continue to be a leader among his peers well into the future.
