“The Texas A&M Corps of Cadets has provided me countless opportunities that I would not have been able to experience without the program. From going to Boston to compete in the Boston Marathon, to having the privilege to lead over 300 prospective Naval and Marine Corps Officers, the Corps of Cadets has allowed me to heighten my skills and prepare myself for multiple careers in the future,” Will said of his time in the Corps.
