Furman Army ROTC Program Honored

Furman University has been awarded the Silver Distinguished Military Graduate Streamer by the 4th Brigade of the U.S. Army Cadet Command (Fort Bragg, N.C.).

The honor recognizes universities in the 4th Brigade for having at least 20 percent of their commissioning seniors who have achieved national rankings. Furman exceeded that standard with four of its seniors receiving qualifying scores.

Cadet Command is comprised of eight brigades, each responsible for a geographical and/or functional area. The 4th Brigade includes U.S. Army ROTC programs in West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

More than 5,000 Cadets within the U.S. Army ROTC compete annually based on an Order-of-Merit List (OML). This list includes GPA, standardized test scores, Army Physical Fitness Scores, specific Command Interest Items, extracurricular activities, and language/cultural awareness activities Cadets have completed, among other metrics.

Said Furman University’s Lt. Col. Gregory C. Scrivens, “Not many schools receive this recognition. This accomplishment is a credit to our senior Cadets and the awesome leadership of Furman’s faculty, staff and administration.”

For more information, contact Lt. Col., Gregory Scrivens, Paladin Battalion, Professor of Military Science, 864-294-2047/3401, or gregory.scrivens@furman.edu. Or contact Furman’s News and Media Relations office at 864-294-3107.
