Rick Perry College Yearbook Photos: Lone Star State Governor At Texas A&M (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Earlier this month, a spokesman for Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry told The Texas Tribune that his experience as a college student at Texas A&M University "helped shape who he is today."

A source in Austin passes along pictures of the Texas governor from his college yearbook. The photos offer a glimpse of the Lone Star State Republican before his rise in the political arena.

HuffPost's Jason Cherkis recently reported:

A source in Texas passed The Huffington Post Perry's transcripts from his years at Texas A&M University. The future politician did not distinguish himself much in the classroom. While he later became a student leader, he had to get out of academic probation to do so. He rarely earned anything above a C in his courses -- earning a C in U.S. History, a D in Shakespeare, and a D in the principles of economics. Perry got a C in gym.

Perry also did poorly on classes within his animal science major. In fall semester 1970, he received a D in veterinary anatomy, a F in a second course on organic chemistry and a C in animal breeding. He did get an A in world military systems and “Improv. of Learning” -- his only two As while at A&M.
