Samantha Reed Samantha Reed

Aug. 15, 2015 – Junior meteorology major Samantha Reed of Manassas, Virginia, accepted command of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets at the Pass in Review on the Drillfield in May. Reed, who is also pursuing minors in leadership studies and statistics, is a member of Air Force ROTC and is a recipient of the Nicholas D. Street ’53 Emerging Leader Scholarship.

Reed will serve as regimental commander, in charge of every cadet in the corps, for the fall 2015 semester. She and other top corps leaders are chosen through a rigorous interview and selection process that examines each leader’s entire cadet career. “Assuming command of the regiment at the change of command ceremony was just the start of this huge responsibility I’ve been given,” she said. “I’m really excited to get to experience this amount of leadership and to grow as a leader.”
