FSC Army ROTC program earns honor
LAKELAND, Fla. (Dec. 8, 2006) — The Florida Southern College Army ROTC program has been recognized for its success in contracting future Army officers during the 2005-06 school year. The program received a Louisville Slugger Bat at an awards banquet Nov. 29 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.
The ceremony was part of the weeklong annual U.S. Army Cadet Command Eastern Region Commander’s Senior PMS Workshop. Lieutenant Colonel Mick Haydak, professor of military science at FSC, attended the event.
In all, 104 of Eastern Region’s 132 Army ROTC programs at colleges and universities across the eastern half of the country were honored for their success in contracting cadets. Because Eastern Region’s headquarters, based at Fort Knox, Ky., is close to Louisville, the awards ceremony takes on a baseball theme. Programs meeting or exceeding their contract mission receive a Louisville Slugger bat. Eastern Region is part of U.S. Army Cadet Command, based at Fort Monroe, Va. The command produces more Army officers than any other commissioning source.
