Bill Lay

Dr. Bill Lay graduated from A&M in 1954 having been a member of both the Corps of Cadets and the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Band. After serving as an officer in the U.S. Air Force, including a stint at Bryan Air Force Base, Lay began a long and distinguished career as a teacher and administrator. During Lay’s nearly quarter-century tenure as director of admissions at Texas A&M, he admitted more students to the university than anyone in history.
