Army ROTC Cadet of the Week
Cadet Marisol Osorio, who is majoring in political science and plans to graduate in May 2021, is the Cadet of the Week. She has been in Army ROTC for one and a half years and her branch is field artillery.
"I joined ROTC for the scholarship opportunities and to have the opportunity to grow as a leader," Osorio said. "I've learned that being a leader entails much more than just telling others what to do. Being a leader is putting others and their needs before your own. Leaders are the standard and the example for others to follow. Leaders take risks and try new things. My advice for future cadets would be to enjoy and take in all the valuable information the program has to offer. Whether you are prior enlisted or new to the program, there is always something new to learn."
