Prescott Army ROTC Wins Regional Award

Embry-Riddle Prescott Army ROTC are recipients of the 2016 Geronimo Award, which recognizes the best large Army ROTC program in the Southwest. The award is given annually to one of 36 ROTC programs in the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

Recipients of the Geronimo Award are acknowledged for their excellence in quality of cadets commissioned including:  GPA, physical training scores, leadership potential and summer camp ratings. 67 cadets are currently enrolled in the program.

Embry-Riddle Army ROTC had exceptionally high academic discipline mix (ADM) scores, meaning cadets had high GPA scores in majors that are considered more demanding or more difficult than other majors.

"I am extremely proud of these young men and women," said MAJ David Jones, Embry-Riddle Prescott Army ROTC. "They continue to work hard both academically and physically, and also find time to selflessly give back to the community through volunteer work.  The dedication of the Cadets and tireless efforts of the Cadre made this possible." 

The Prescott Army ROTC curriculum is exciting, challenging and flexible enough to meet requirements while helping cadets accomplish academic and personal goals. Classes and training include map reading, land navigation, rappelling, water survival, marksmanship, patrolling, tactics, customs and courtesies, drill and ceremony, military history, ethics, writing skills, professional reading, and military law and procedures.
