Silver Taps To Honor Five Aggies

The memory of five recently deceased Texas A&M students will be honored during the university’s solemn Silver Taps ceremony on Tuesday, Feb. 7.

Chimes from Albritton Bell Tower will play as Aggies gather in the plaza area in front of the Academic Building. Campus will be darkened at 10:20 p.m., then at 10:30 p.m., the silence will be split by the slow, echoing cadence of the Ross Volunteers.

Following the firing of three volleys, Silver Taps will be played by six buglers three times--to the north, west and south--all to honor the life and memory of five recently deceased students:

  • Lauren Elizabeth Brown '16, an international studies major from Frisco.
  • Andrew Michael Sutter '16, a medical student from Portland.
  • William Lucas Douphrate III '19, an urban and regional planning major from College Station.
  • Matthew Allen Hayes '19, an engineering major from Beaumont.
  • Tyrel Corrigan Brown '20, an engineering major from Rockdale.

Free parking in the University Center Garage will be available between 9 p.m. and 2 a.m. In case of rain or dangerous lightning, the ceremony will be moved to Duncan Dining Hall.
