Spencer Le ’14 is a Computer Science major with a minor in Business Administration from New Braunfels, Texas, and is the son of Melisa and Tri Riggs. Spencer serves as the Commanding Officer for Squadron 12 for the 2013 – 2014 school year.

Active within the Corps, Spencer served as the Squadron 12 First Sergeant, was a member of the 2011 National Champion Fish Drill Team, and was named a Distinguished Graduate at U.S. Air Force Field Training in 2012 – given to the top 10% of AFROTC cadets within a flight during a four-week leadership evaluation.

Outside the Corps, Spencer was Valedictorian and a Distinguished Graduate of an Information Assurance Internship with the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, Information Directorate, in Rome, New York during the summer of 2013. The internship focused on learning and applying management risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information or data and the systems and processes used for those purposes.

Spencer plans to commission into the U.S. Air force upon graduation in May 2015. He aspires to work as a cyberspace operator with a focus on network security.

I am very proud of Spencer for his leadership abilities as Commander of Squadron 12, and for his dedication to his studies and his drive towards his goal of becoming an officer in the U.S. Air Force. Spencer has excelled in his training efforts through the Corps and AFROTC, and has expanded his knowledge base both personally and professionally. He is an exceptional role model for his fellow cadets, and I have no doubt that he will go on to great success in the future with the US Air Force.
