Virginia Beach resident is one of the youngest merchant mariners at Texas A&M.


Virginia Beach – When George Pickard saw the TS Empire State for the first time at 12 years old, he was inspired to become a part of the maritime world.

While his peers were in their early twenties, George was only 15 years old when he began his Texas A&M journey.

His decision was a success. He became the youngest graduate in Texas A&M’s history at 18 years old. He just celebrated his 19th birthday, and one day he might be the youngest one to sail around the world.
