Two Corps of Cadets Squadrons are Reactivated

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) _ Gov. Rick Perry and his fellow Texas A&M classmate and now A&M System Chancellor John Sharp are getting together in College Station for ceremonies marking the reactivation of their old Corps of Cadets squadron.

Squadron 6 is one of two Aggie Corps squadrons officially coming back to life Friday. It was disbanded in 1992 as Corps membership slipped. But A&M officials say membership in the recent fall semester was 2,303 students _ the highest in 15 years. So for the second straight year, two former squadrons are being reactivated.

Perry and Sharp were among 58 members of Squadron 6 to arrive as Aggie freshmen in 1968. They were among 13 still there as seniors in 1972 when Perry graduated as Aggie yell leader and Sharp was student body president.
