TMI announces October Cadet of the Month awards

The Texas Military Institute Corps of Cadets recognized sophomore Armando Martinez as Upper School Cadet of the Month and eighth-grader Ana Paula Velasco as Middle School Cadet of the Month for October. Both honorees were recognized during daily chapel at TMI.

Martinez, a recipient of the school’s four-year, full-tuition Alkek Scholarship, is a cadet squad leader in the TMI Corps. Velasco is active in middle-school theater and in TMI’s chapter of Interact, a Rotary-sponsored youth community-service organization.

Both competed against two other cadets in their divisions, representing the Corps’ three companies. Cadets were inspected and quizzed on their TMI knowledge and local and national chain of commands until there was one winner from each division.

Recipients of Cadet of the Month honors will be considered for Cadet of the Semester and Cadet of the Year awards.
