Texas A&M uses 12-person committee to pick new Reveille
Texas A&M has a new Reveille, the collie mascot that roams the Aggies sidelines, after a nationwide search conducted by a special 12-person committee convened by the school.
That is right, it took 12 people to find a dog mascot for Texas A&M.
The 16-month-old dog from Ohio was originally named Twix before being chosen as the ninth Reveille, according to the A&M student paper The Eagle.
The dog traditionally serves as the highest ranking member of the school's Corps of Cadets, and if she happens to bark in class, that session is to be canceled.
