Shippensburg University is pleased to announce four Army ROTC cadets have earned the Distinguished Military Graduate (DMG) designation.

Senior criminal justice major Reilly Kline, senior psychology major Patrick Hiller, senior management major Haylie Hardy and senior criminal justice major Johnathan Adami are ranked in the top 20 percent of all ROTC cadets from nearly 1,000 colleges and universities across the country.

The designation and ranking is determined by performance in three areas over the course of a student’s time as a cadet; academics, physical fitness and leadership potential.

“I’m immensely proud of these four cadets. This marks the first time in several years that the Shippensburg ROTC program has multiple DMGs from a single graduating class. They are a great example to their fellow cadets and will undoubtedly make excellent Army Officers in service of their country,” said Lt. Col. Chris Morton, chair of the Military Science Department.

The four cadets will graduate and commission as second lieutenants in May 2019.
