Hall of Honor Gala

The Hall of Honor Gala is the hallmark event for recognizing and honoring those who contribute to the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets in a manner that is above and beyond the call.  The Corps of Cadets established the Hall of Honor in 1993 to pay tribute to those former cadets who have lived a life that exemplifies the Texas Aggie Spirit. Those chosen also possess the values upon which the Corps was founded: honor, loyalty, service, pride, patriotism, faith, leadership, and honesty. CCA Order of the Saber level and above are invited to attend the Hall of Honor Gala.
