Four ROTC cadets were named Distinguished Military Graduates by the US Army Cadet Command. To attain this honor, cadets must rank in the top 20 percent of the National Order of Merit List. This list is comprised of senior cadets who completed Cadet Summer Training and determined by the cadets’ academic, leadership, and physical fitness achievements.

“Earning Distinguished Military Graduate honors is an incredibly impressive accomplishment. Hannah, George, Riley, and Robert represent the very best of our Nation’s cadets. Extremely intelligent, physically fit, and highly involved both on campus and in their community, they are exceptional leaders with stellar potential. This honor is a testament to their diligence and drive throughout their college careers. We are so proud of them,” said LTC. Nicole Jepsen, chair of the Military Science Department.

Seniors Hannah Culp (international studies), George Drivas (exercise science), Riley Gladhill (supply chain management) and Rober Lissner (exercise science) are this year’s Distinguished Military Graduates.
