Texas A&M will hold a Silver Taps ceremony Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. to honor two students who recently died.

The students who will be honored are Benson Chan, a junior aerospace engineering major from Plano who died March 11, and Claudio Romero, a junior statistics major from Ennis who died Feb. 11.

The Silver Taps ceremony, which will be in the university's Academic Plaza, will be broadcast on KAMU-TV and Texas A&M’s YouTube channel.

Silver Taps is an A&M tradition held on the first Tuesday of each month from September through April, if necessary, to honor current students who have died.

Watch now as The Eagle sports crew looks back at the 10-year anniversary of the Texas A&M women's basketball national championship and the memories of that season.

The first Silver Taps was in 1898 after the death of the university’s president, Lawrence Sullivan Ross, and it has changed little from that time.

All campus flags are flown at half-staff on the day of Silver Taps, while a list of the names of those to be remembered is posted at the base of the flagpole in the Academic Plaza.

Dozens of Bryan city leaders welcomed new Fire Chief Richard Giusti as he was sworn in Thursday afternoon. Giusti, who is replacing retired Fire Chief Randy McGregor, was previously at the San Antonio Fire Department where he served as the Assistant Fire Chief.
