 SRU’S ARMY ROTC PROGRAM COMMISSIONS FIVE CADETS AS SECOND LIEUTENANTS  

     SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Slippery Rock University’s award-winning Army ROTC program has commissioned five cadets as second lieutenants at the end of spring semester.

     The five are:

* David Lisovich of East Pittsburgh, now assigned to the armor branch at Fort Hood, Texas;

* Lisa Hatfield, of Slippery Rock, now assigned to the medical service corps, but given an education delay to allow her to pursue her master’s degree at West Virginia University;

* Brandon Libert of Olympia, Wash., now awaiting assignment in the ordnance branch; and

* Daniel Maigret of Lockport, N.Y., now assigned to field artillery training at Fort Stewart, Ga., and

* Christopher Richard, of Slippery Rock, now assigned to the Pennsylvania National Guard Unit in New Castle.

      Earlier this year, the program was awarded its third Cadet Command award in as many years for meeting its commissioning mission for fiscal 2005. The award is only given to ROTC program that meet or exceed the Army’s goal off commissioning lieutenants into the army. The SRU program enrolls some 100 cadets offering them leadership and officer training.

     The program provides three- and four-year, as well as incentive, scholarship opportunities. In addition to a number of Gen. Douglass MacArthur Awards, proclaiming the unit as “Best Small School” in the region in training Army officers, the SRU ROTC program offers a leadership minor as a means of instilling multiple leadership traits and abilities in cadets. Students make use of an on-campus leadership laboratory to undertake responsibilities for planning and completing missions. The campus program has consistently ranked in the nation’s top 10 percent of all ROTC units.
