ROTC cadet receives Marshall award


ROTC Cadet Eren Youmans (right) received the George Marshall award from Lt. Col. Rodney Griffin on behalf of the George C. Marshall Foundation at a ceremony on Main Campus last week.

The mission of the George C. Marshall Foundation is “to promote the values of selfless service, dedicated effort and strength of character exemplified by Marshall’s life and leadership in war and peace, and to inspire new generations to follow his example as they face the challenges of the future.”

The award is given to the top 270 of the more than 4,000 cadets in the United States Army Command each year.

The award was first presented to Youmans at the annual conference at the General of the Army George C. Marshall Foundation in Lexington, Va., in April.

The conference recognizes the outstanding leadership potential of ROTC cadets across the nation.

A social work major, Choi is one of 323 students to be recognized as a President’s Scholar, putting her in the top 7 percent of this year’s graduating class.

To qualify, students must complete their first seven semesters at Temple with a cumulative grade point average of 3.75 or higher.

Choi, a native of Seoul, South Korea, will study international social welfare at the Columbia University School of Social Work this fall.
