Cameron ROTC cadets receive scholarships

Cadets from Cameron University’s Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corp. (ROTC) program have been awarded scholarships based on academic performance, physical fitness, leadership qualities and overall potential to serve as an officer in the United States Army. Cameron cadets received 10 of the 34 regional scholarships awarded as part of the Civilian Sponsored Scholarship Program, which annually provides scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,000.

“For Cameron cadets to receive almost one-third of these regional scholarships is evidence of the dedication and commitment that exists within the Comanche Battalion,” says Lt. Colonel Rod Boles, Chair of Cameron’s George D. Keathley Department of Military Science. “Each of the recipients demonstrates an outstanding work ethic and a strong desire to serve our country. They are all destined for leadership positions, and we congratulate them on these scholarship awards.”

Recipients of a United Services Automobile Association Scholarship are Andrew S. Baughman, Rodney L. Brown, Gary M. Clark, Jr., Francisco Gonzales-Rodriguez, Gregory A. Hough, Brandon J. Landrum, Frank R. Obie IV, and Micah W Turner. Terrence C. Juxonsmith received the Armed Forces Insurance General Melvin Zais Scholarship, and Tobias C. Alexander received the Lieutenant General Timothy J. Maude Scholarship

The Comanche Battalion, Cameron’s ROTC program, is ranked in the top 15 percent of the 272 ROTC programs nationwide and is the highest-ranked ROTC program in Oklahoma.
