Ketchum Could Be First Female A&M Yell Leader
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

A&M calls them yell leaders, and for more than 100 years of this one-time military academy, they've been men. Samantha Ketcham wants to change that. She received enough votes to qualify for a runoff later this week - a first. Though a win is hardly assured, she says she's shocked and excited to have gotten this far. It's MORNING EDITION.
