Brawnlyn Blueitt, an International Studies major in Politics and Diplomacy with a double minor in Arabic and Military Studies, is the daughter of two former Texas A&M Corps members, Pauletta Brown Blueitt ’81 (Squadron 14) and Odis Blueitt ’82 (Company B-2). Currently serving as Corps Scholastics Officer, Brawnlyn, originally from Squadron 12, is currently the Commanding Officer of the Special Tactics Squadron and is the only female in the unit’s three-year history. As the Corps Scholastics Officer, she is responsible for helping to develop and enforce a new scholastics policy that helped the Corps achieved its highest fall GPR in decades. Active within the Corps, she is a member of the Arnold Air Society, the Cultural Awareness and Diversity Expansion Team (C.A.D.E.T.), the O.R. Simpson Honor Society, and played on the Corps Women’s Basketball team her fish year.
Brawnlyn is also very involved in University organizations such as Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated; Aggie Experience Council, and is a graduate of the 2012 class of Academy for Future International Leaders. She also participates in programs and activities involving her major. An avid traveler, she has visited 12 countries across Europe, the Middle East and Asia since high school, and has studied three languages: Spanish, Arabic, and Russian. She travelled to Germany during Spring Break in 2011 as part of the first Corps Excursion, and recently spent the entire summer completing her language courses in Jordan, where she also traveled to Israel and the Palestinian Territories.
Recently selected for the Who’s Who Among American Colleges and Universities at Texas A&M – one of 13 cadets chosen – she has recently applied for a job to return to Amman, Jordan as a counselor for the program she attended last summer. Following graduation in May, she will commission into the U.S. Air Force as an Intelligence Officer, where her first duty station is set for Goodfellow AFB, Texas. Her ultimate goal is to become a Foreign Affairs Officer in the Air Force.
Very proud of Brawnlyn and all that she has accomplished as a member of the Corps of Cadets. She is no doubt going to be an exceptional leader well into the future!
