The yell leaders for the 2021-22 academic year have been elected, and among them are junior Noah Ferguson and sophomore Kipp Knecht, both industrial and systems engineering students.  
 
Ferguson and Knecht are joined by Zac Cross, Woods Johnson, and head yell leader Memo Salinas. Salinas also made history as the first Hispanic head yell leader.
 
Ferguson is from Keller Texas, and is a member of the Corps of Cadets in Squadron 23. In the first semester of his junior year, he set his sights on his chosen major after beginning to immerse himself in the world of industrial and systems engineering and manufacturing processes.
 
“I knew growing up that engineering would be where I landed; there was no doubt that I would be doing something in that field later in life,” Ferguson said. “I have loved every aspect of my experience in industrial and systems engineering so far, and I am so excited to be in a major that I love while serving the university through the yell program.”
 
Knecht is from Batavia, Illinois, and is a member of the Corps of Cadets in Squadron 3. He says his first time hearing about industrial and systems engineering was from another junior in his outfit.
 
“I think the coolest part is how broad industrial engineering can be, and how it can combine lots of engineering aspects all at the same time,” Knecht said. “Getting to represent Texas A&M and the industrial and systems engineering department as a junior yell leader is the greatest honor and privilege I have ever had. I am proud to be part of this amazing group of industrial engineers.”
 
“Cadets Ferguson and Knecht are two very dedicated individuals who demonstrate the work ethic and resilience of an industrial engineer, and we are very proud they will be representing our department as yell leaders this next academic year,” said Dr. Mike Graul, associate professor of industrial and systems engineering.
