Corps names next commander, leaders New commander David Trigg calls position a privilege Jennifer Reiley The Battalion

T

he Corps of Cadets announced on Tuesday its new student leaders for the 2014-2015 school year. David Trigg, the newly selected Corps commander for the 20142015 year, said he is excited to serve the Corps next year as commander. “The key leaders selected from

the Class of 2015 are all exceptional men and women,” Trigg said. “It will be a privilege to work with them to positively impact the Corps and Texas A&M.” Eric Gil, current Corps commander, said he hopes the Class of 2014 has helped make the way smoother for the upcoming class of leaders. “The Class of 2015 is the beginning of our legacy,” Gil said. “I have full faith and confidence that they surpass everyone’s expectations.” Gil said the new Corps leaders will have to learn to lead one of the

largest Corps of Cadets that A&M has seen. Current projections put next year’s Corps membership between 2,550 and 2,600 cadets. “The goals of this next group of Corps leaders is to sustain the improvements that were made this year and continue to determine where new improvements need to be made,” Gil said. Trigg said he hopes to leave the Corps bigger and better than when he joined. “My goals for the Corps next See Leaders on page 3

ormer Secretary of Commerce Barbara H. Franklin was welcomed by the Bush School Tuesday night to discuss her role in advancing the cause of women and those individuals who pioneered allowing women in the landscape of politics. Her presentation in the Annenberg Conference Center used the book by Lee Stout titled, “A Matter of Simple Justice: The Untold Story of Barbara Hackman Franklin and a Few Good Women.” After an introduction by former Bush School dean Andrew Card, Franklin, who served under President Richard Nixon, spoke about presidential leadership, a recurring theme throughout her discussion. “Presidential leadership really counts,” Franklin said. “I really think what Presi-

student senator filed Tuesday for the impeachment of student body president Reid Joseph on the grounds that he has failed to comply with the legal duties of his position. With 21 signatures from student senators, the petition for impeachment has the necessary one-thirds signatures required by the SGA constitution for an impeachment trial to be held at the next Student Senate meeting, Feb. 19, said Student Senate speaker Christopher Russo. According to the SGA constitution, a three-fourths vote from student senators at the hearing is required to remove Joseph from office. The articles of impeachment, filed by student senator Cary Cheshire,

dent Nixon did was take this left-leaning movement for women’s equality, and brought it right into the middle of American life and made it mainstream.” Franklin then described the social climate that marked the beginning of her efforts to introduce women to the Nixon White House and government in general. She said the growing movement for equal rights for women, combined with an increased push for women to be able to join the workforce, led to the appearance of more women in government offices. “There are lessons to be learned and inspiration to be gained from history,” Franklin said. “First lesson is that presidential leadership really counts. In this case, it was President Nixon whose leadership really counted in the advancement of women. Second, women were becoming responsible for positions that they had never been responsible for and there was a glass ceiling, and they broke it.” For the full story, visit thebatt.com

UPD seeks book theft information O

n Jan. 29, a male subject entered the MSC Bookstore between 12:07-12:15 p.m. and stole an unknown number of books. The suspect appeared to be a white male, wearing a light-colored jacket, a black shirt with a Pittsburgh Steelers logo on the front and black wind pants. The suspect had a dark-colored backpack on his back, light colored sneakers and he was carrying a light-colored cap and a light-colored book bag. The suspect appeared to place approximately five to six books in the book bag he was carrying. A witness said the suspect walked to various shelves that contained business and accounting books and placed them in his bag. The suspect then walked upstairs and left the store. It is estimated that five to six books were stolen with the total value to be $500-1,000. University Police Department

exas A&M (13-10, 4-6 SEC) will tip off against the LSU Tigers (15-7, 6-4 SEC) at 8 p.m. Wednesday in Reed Arena. Sophomore guard Alex Caruso said he doesn’t consider the Tigers a rival yet, but just another good opponent coming into College Station. “For one thing, LSU is like us in that they play really good at home,” Caruso said. “LSU coming on the road is going to help us out a little bit, but they’re a team with streaky shooting guards who can really shoot it. We have to bear with it, play defense and not let them get on runs.” The Aggies are no strangers to LSU, matching up against the Tigers 26 times before Wednesday’s game. LSU owns the series 15-11. Last time A&M and LSU met, LSU won 68-57, thanks to a 20-point performance by graduated senior Charles Carmouche. Graduated senior Ray Turner put in a double-double performance for the Aggies, scoring 16 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. This season, LSU has three players averaging in double figures, Johnny O’Bryant III, Jordan Mickey and Andre Stringer. O’Bryant leads LSU in scoring, averaging 15.6 points per game. O’Bryant received SEC player of the week honors in early February thanks to a season-high 29-point performance against Kentucky. Mickey was recruited by the Aggies but ultimately decided to sign with LSU. Mickey has been named SEC Freshman of the Week three times and leads the SEC in blocked shots.

For one thing, LSU is like us in that they play really good at home. LSU coming on the road is going to help us out a little bit, but they’re a team with streaky shooting guards who can really shoot it. We have to bear with it, play defense and not let them get on runs.” — Sophomore guard Alex Caruso

A&M head coach Billy Kennedy talked about the success Mickey has had this season. “[Mickey] is one of the top freshmen in the country,” Kennedy said. “[Mickey] visited [Texas A&M] when he was younger, but his brother is a wide receiver for LSU and pretty much had the inside track on getting him. He is definitely a difference maker as a freshman that many [programs] would like to have.” LSU brought in the fifth-ranked recruiting class in the nation last year, which includes highly touted forwards Mickey and Jarell Martin. On offense, LSU ranks third in scoring and second in rebounds, while the Aggies are last in both categories. On defense, the Tigers lead the SEC in steals and are ranked second in blocked shots per game. The Aggies have lost six of their last seven games, but are 3-1 in league play when playing at home.

for the Korean cadets to develop their leadership skills and for the visiting cadets and their A&M counterparts to further their understanding of their respective cultures. “We have 32 host cadets from the Corps who, since [the Korean cadets] arrival, have also been showing them around campus and the community,” Dulke said. “The Korean cadets attend formations with these host cadets and have even had the opportunity to attend some of their academic classes.” Dulke said plans for the program have been in the works for almost a year after the Corps was contacted by the Korean ROTC Association and asked to develop the program between the ROTC groups. Brig. Gen. Joe Ramirez, corps commandant, said this program is part of the Corps’ global initiative program. The Corps has several options abroad for cadets including excursions to Turkey, Chile and India. “We’ve been doing this since I got here, for the last three years,” Ramirez said. “And of course we have this exchange program with Helmut Schmidt University in Germany, and we’re hoping to expand that because in today’s global economy, in this global market that we live in today, it’s important that we expose our cadets to global perspectives and other ways of seeing the world. Who knows, in the future one of our cadets may be

They will be taken on field trips to the Houston Space Center, Fort Hood and the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi. Dulke said the Korean Cadets would get to participate in active leadership training. “The cadets will also get some hands-on leadership training when they visit the A&M Challenge

Course run by the Department of Kinesiology,” Dulke said. “They will also visit the Bush School of Government and get a tour of the Bush Library and Museum.” In addition to historical and informational activities, Keltin Jordan, Corps global initiatives and diversity officer, said the Korean cadets, accompanied by their host cadets, will attend three basketball games and two baseball games. “Next week we are having a Korean tailgate event before the baseball game,” Jordan said. “We’ll have food and a mini yell practice with the yell leaders at Spence Park for them.” Korean cadet Do Whui Nam, English and translation major in South Korea, said her experience with the Corps thus far has been

different from the way of life in South Korea, but she has grown fond of the traditions. “Back home, we don’t say hello to strangers,” Whui Nam said. “But here, everybody is always saying, ‘Howdy,’ to everyone they know. It’s refreshing.” Whui Nam said she enjoyed the atmosphere at the basketball game against Mississippi State. “This was a new experience because cheerleading and the culture of cheer are very different,” Whui Nam said. “Everyone was dancing and yelling. It was so interesting.” Jordan said the Korean cadets are scheduled to return to South Korea on Feb. 23, and will be sent off with a farewell dinner and gifts. While Whui Nam said she misses her parents and friends back home, she cherishes her experience at Texas A&M and her time with her host cadet, Cristina Palomino, senior university studies major. Whui Nam said Palomino has been an incredible friend. “She is an exemplary student, cadet and friend,” Whui Nam said. “I created a Facebook page to keep in touch with her when I go home. She has become very special to me. All of them have.” Dulke said although this is only the first year of the program, he doesn’t expect it to be the last. “This has given both sets of cadets the opportunity to learn each other’s culture,” Dulke said. “It is hoped that the program will grow and become better.”

year are entirely based on serving and impacting the lives of cadets and students,” Trigg said. “I hope to build on the great strides we have made with academics, professional development, recruiting and retention.” Next year, Trigg said there would be two deputy commanders, a first for the Corps. “The two deputy Corps commanders are new this year due to the growing need for internal and external focus,” Trigg said. “The sheer magnitude of the many responsibilities the current deputy corps commander has internally and externally become too taxing. With two deputy corps commanders, the Corps will be able to develop our special units and ROTC connections while maintaining a strong and positive relationship with student organizations and the rest of the student body.” Brig. Gen. Joe Ramirez, Corps commandant, shared the list on his public Facebook page. The post concluded with the commandant congratulating the new Corps leaders. “Congratulations again to all,” Ramirez posted. “We look forward to another successful school year next year for our Corps with this exceptional cadet command team!” The shift in Corps command will take effect on May 3.

T

he largest Liberal Arts Career Fair in Texas A&M history, in terms of company attendance, will take place Wednesday, said Donald Curtis, assistant Liberal Arts dean. The fair will host more than 60 businesses and 120 recruiters. Curtis said the College of Liberal Arts and the A&M Career Center have been planning this fair since last year’s event. Attendees to the career fair are advised to wear business attire and to bring at least 10 copies of their resume for their favorite companies. Students are invited to come and try to find an internship or an entrylevel job. Students will not be allowed in without a valid student ID card. The fair will be open to all majors but is especially oriented for liberal arts majors. Curtis said employers are starting to realize that liberal arts majors are life-long learners and produce a high quality of work, especially students from Texas A&M. “When you look at a lot of the Fortune 500 companies, their CEOs are often Liberal Arts graduates,” Curtis said. “I think there is a growing recognition that there is nothing like the classical liberal arts educational model to ensure that the person [a company] hires has no ceiling in terms of their ability to be a lifelong learner, a leader, and someone who possesses a broad-based education, an entrepreneurial spirit, and the ability to think critically.” Sophomore psychology major Lisa Cordero said she is attending the career fair because of the great summer opportunities it could offer her and fellow A&M students. “I want to go to the career fair to seek out early internship opportunities with larger companies,” Cordero said. “I’m hoping that interning with companies from the career fair will lead to better job opportunities for the future.” The fair will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Rudder Exhibit Hall.

state that despite notifications, Joseph has “repeatedly and deliberately” taken action contrary to the rules outlined in the SGA Constitution and SGA Code. The document also states that the executive cabinet has been “rocked with repeated resignations of members.” Cheshire said he feels morally obligated to uphold his oath of office as senator by filing for Joseph’s impeachment. Joseph said his team is looking further into the issue and encouraged students to share their opinions on the matter. “It is an incredible honor to represent this student body and school I love so dearly,” Joseph said. “We have made incredible strides this year in student government and have brought about some great changes … I would like to encourage all students to reach out to The Battalion, to the Student Senate as well as myself and express their opinion on the matter. My email is sbp.tamu.edu and I look forward to hearing from the student body.” Cheshire said he will present a more detailed argument at the Feb. 19 hearing. The rules and regulations chair will preside over the meeting, which will be closed to all parties except the defendant, senators and the chief justice of student government’s judicial court.
