Spencer Kitten ’15 is an Industrial Distribution major with a minor in Business from Lubbock, Texas. He is the son of Edward and Suzanne Kitten and has one sister, Mackenzie, who recently graduated from Texas A&M in December of 2012. Spencer is currently serving as the Sergeant Major of 2nd Regiment, but previously served as the Operations Officer on Corps Staff and was initially a member of Company N-1. He is also a Midshipman in the United States Navy Reserve. Spencer has been selected to serve as one of two Deputy Corps Commanders for the 2014 – 2015 school year.
Active within the Corps, Spencer is currently a member of the Ross Volunteers and the Corps of Cadets Marksmanship Unit (CCMU). Spencer has traveled to many places during his time at Texas A&M, including a May 2012 Corps Excursion to South Korea and a recent trip to Israel with the Jewish National Fund as part of the Caravan for Democracy in January. He has also traveled to Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Georgia with the CCMU.
After graduation in May 2016, Spencer will commission into the United States Navy as an Ensign and aspires to serve in the submarine force.
Spencer is a talented and dedicated young man who has proven to be an exceptional leader in the Corps. He has excelled in leadership positions in the Corps, and has also striven to expand his horizons by traveling abroad and experiencing new counties, new people, new cultures, and new perspectives on the world. His training with the US Navy Reserve will unquestionably serve him well in the future as he pursues a career in the Navy. I have no doubt that Spencer is going to be a superb Ensign and a superb submariner. I look forward to watching Spencer in action next year during his tenure as Deputy Corps Commander, and I am confident that he is going to continue to have a big impact on the Corps next year and on the US Navy in the future. A true “Soldier, Statesman, and Knightly Gentleman.”
