SRU ROTC UNIT PRESENTED TWO LIBERTY BRIGADE COMMANDER CERTIFICATES

          SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Slippery Rock University’s Army Reserve Officer Training Corps program has received two Liberty Brigade Commander’s Certificates, including a $1,000 award, for attaining the third-highest mission percentage within the second brigade.

          The awards were presented by Col. Mark A. Cianchetti, headquartered at Fort Dix, N.J., who noted the SRU unit, led by Lt. Col. Steven Stevens, had achieved 164 percent its assigned mission in commissioning second lieutenants for the year. The cash award will be used for equipment and cadet travel.

          “This assignment reflects great credit upon the U.S. Army Cadet Command, the staff and ROTC cadre of Slippery Rock University,” Cianchetti said. SRU’s ROTC program is ranked in the top 10 percent in the nation.

           In addition, SRU’s 10-member ROTC team, headed by Master Sgt. Kenneth Howard, placed fifth in competition with 22 other ROTC teams from New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania at the Ranger Challenge held at Fort Dix.
