Retired Colonel Named Dean Of Tarleton Leadership And Military College

Retired U.S. Air Force Col. Kenny Weldon has been named dean of Tarleton State University’s new Leadership and Military College, effective immediately, and will continue his role as Commandant of the Texan Corps of Cadets. The college results from the rapid growth of the corps, reinstated in 2016, as a leadership development program. The number of cadets has almost doubled over the past four years to 120 strong. The corps was originally founded in 1917, when Tarleton became founding member of The Texas A&M University System.
