The Campus Muster speaker for 2017 will be Eddie Joe Davis '67, the Aggie Muster Committee announced Feb. 7.
Davis is a former Corps commander and a veteran of the Vietnam War. He has three degrees from A&M: a bachelor's in agricultural journalism and a master's and a doctorate in educational administration.
He has served as CFO and executive deputy chancellor for the A&M System, interim president of the university, tenured professor and president of the Texas A&M Foundation. He has been a Fish Camp namesake and was inducted in 2011 into the Corps Hall of Honor.
“Obviously, selection as the Campus Muster Speaker is the pinnacle experience in a lifetime love affair with Texas A&M,” Davis told The Battalion. “It is made even more special because the selection is done by students.”
The 2017 campus Muster ceremony will be April 21 in Reed Arena. More than 300 other Musters will be held worldwide. As Sue Owen '94 reported for the March-April issue of Texas Aggie magazine:
You might be sitting on a hay bale, or on top of a mountain, or in the state Capitol, an outdoor pavilion, or a pizza place.
Your speaker might be an astronaut, a member of the women’s basketball team, your mayor, a Club officer.
Or there might be no speaker: Musters take many different forms.
