Tuesday, it was announced that Cecille Sorio will be the 2016-2017 Fightin’ Texas Aggie Corps Commander. As you might be able to tell by her name and/or picture she is, indeed, a female. If you are unaware, Alyssa Michalke is currently serving as the Corps Commander and, was the first female to serve as this role in Texas A&M’s History. If you have not connected the dots yet, that means that, for the second year in a row, the Corps will be led by a woman.

Many are concerned that this trend may be setting a dangerous gender precedent for years to come. Roger Harpock, a Junior Chemical Engineering major also in outfit Z-2, is very concerned for the future of the Corps.

“The whole school is going crazy. There’s a female Corps Commander, a girl running for Yell Leader, AND one running for Student Body President. Next thing you know, even our secret societies will allow women. I just don’t want this to become a pattern.”

Though the Corps has had 139 male Corps Commanders in its history, in the last two years, 100% of the Corps Commanders have been female. A VERY scary statistic for those who coin the phrase “good bull”.

“This is not just a Corps issue; it affects everyone. When you give a mouse a cookie, ya know?” Harpock says. “Women are going to start thinking that it is okay for them to take on new roles in our University- and that just because it happens once, it is going to keep happening. “

5K for Yell

Yes, you have met her, and yes, she knows your friend so and so from that thing that one time. She has handed you fliers, she has yelled at you from her banner holding post, your friend introduced her to you that one time in the MSC, you are friends on Facebook, and she is in at least two of your GroupMe’s. You hate her for always looking like she just worked out, but in reality she just has to be constantly maintaining a comfortable jog to get to her next meeting on time. We have never actually seen her in person, but sometimes she emails us good jokes, so we let her stay affiliated.
