Texas A&M University Corps of Cadets member and engineering student Seth Dopp ‘22 was the highest-ranked graduate of his 181-member class at the Marine Corps Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Quantico, Virginia, this summer. As a result of finishing first in his class, he is also the recipient of the Commandant’s Trophy, presented by the Commandant of the Marine Corps.

Dopp had the highest combined leadership, academic and physical fitness average during his six-week session. As a result, he received the Commandant’s Trophy,  which is presented to the candidate with the highest composite average in the Platoon Leaders Class.

A junior at Texas A&M, Dopp is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in industrial distribution. He is a member of Company P-2 where he serves as a platoon sergeant and the outfit training sergeant. In addition to being a member of the Corps of Cadets, Dopp is enrolled in the Marine Corps’ Platoon Leaders Class, a program that, among other requirements, calls for participants to complete a six-week summer training session in Quantico.

Brig. Gen. Joe E. Ramirez Jr., commandant of the Corps of Cadets, said such recognition of Cadet Dopp is well-deserved, describing his finishing first in his OCS class as “a very prestigious honor for a future Marine officer.”

Ramirez said Dopp is the third Texas A&M cadet in the past six years to win the Commandant’s Trophy – a true testament to the caliber of the cadets who are in the Corps at Texas A&M.

Following graduation from the university, Dopp said he will commission as a 2nd lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps.
