This marks the second year in a row — and second time in the Corps’ 140-year history — that a female has been named Commander of the Corps of Cadets.

Sorio will succeed Alyssa Marie Michalke '16 in the role.

Females were first allowed to join Texas A&M's Corps of Cadets, which had only ceased mandatory participation nine years prior, in 1974.

Sorio, a San Antonio native, is currently Sergeant Major of the 3rd Wing and is a junior meteorology major and member of the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2017.

Interesting that she wasn't Corps SGM. I wonder what behind the scenes drama went on

I wouldn't assume any drama. There's other ways for a junior to distinguish themselves besides being SGM.

Congrats to the new Cirps Commander!

She was a Major Unit SGM. The current Corps SGM will be a MUC next year

I was just looking at the entire list of every Corps Commander since 1876 and saw that there were two in the 2004-2005 school year. What happened there?

Incident involving E-Walk (or that night, more specifically), from my understanding.

VA removed him for hazing because he permitted the fish v. jr detail (bound and taped jr to something around Quad) to continue after seeing and did not report them for discipline..

Was this the flag pole incident?

Some guys I worked with had to call a ambulance and the cops when they found someone duck taped to the pole upside down and almost dead.

I forget what year that was.

Yeah.
Upside down, the blood was pooling and he was having a difficult time breathing.
From what I understand he had been there for a while.

For what it's worth these four young men, grew up to be well rounded gentlemen. Thank you hazing.
