A&M Students Vote Against Kyle Field Referendum While Keeping Male Yell Leaders

More than 13,000 A&M students voted in the online spring elections that ended Friday.

Two questions regarding the expansion of Kyle Field failed.

65.16% (or 8,049 of 12,352 students) opposed increasing sports pass prices and fees, and support funding the renovations out of funds currently generated by the University Advancement Fee.

And only 34.84% (4,303 of 12,352 students) supported increasing the advancement fee by $1.55 per credit hour ($23.25 for full time students) and sports pass prices by $139.20.

2013 marks the 50th anniversary of women being admitted to A&M as full-time students. But next year’s yell leaders will continue to be male members of the Corps of Cadets. In a bid to become the first female yell leader, Sarah Petta finished fifth for one of the three senior yell leader openings. Petta is a third generation Aggie from Corpus Christi.
