Corpus Christi, TX, USA – The Port of Corpus Christi Authority would like to congratulate Nueces County Judge, Loyd Neal, upon the announcement of his induction to the Texas A&M University Corps of Cadets Hall of Honor.
Holding office as Nueces County Judge from 2007 to 2018, and with prior service of four terms as Mayor of the City of Corpus Christi, Judge Neal has remained a strong advocate for the Port of Corpus Christi and a stalwart partner in its mission.
“Loyd Neal has devoted much of his life to community service for the betterment of our region. His role as County Judge, position of Chairman for numerous regionally important boards, and previous service as Mayor has ensured that Loyd also held an integral role in the growth of the Port of Corpus Christi, said Charles Zahn, Port of Corpus Christi Commission Chair.” “On behalf of the Port I congratulate Loyd on his induction to the Texas A&M University Corps of Cadets Hall of Honor.”
The Corps of Cadets established the Hall of Honor in 1993 to pay tribute to those former cadets who have lived a life that exemplifies the Texas Aggie Spirit. Those chosen also possess the values upon which the Corps was founded: honor, loyalty, service, pride, patriotism, faith, leadership, and honesty.
Plaques containing portraits and biographies of each member are displayed in the Hall of Honor of the Sam Houston Sanders Corps of Cadets Center in College Station, Texas. A special lapel pin identifies the members of the Hall of Honor.
