ROTC Cadet Kenneth McAllman was recognized by the US Army during the recent Magic City Classic in Birmingham. Cadet McAllman is a graduate student from Alabama A&M University with a bachelor's degree in logistics.
After graduation in May 2013, McAllman decided to pursue a military career as an Army officer. As a graduate student with no previous military experience and with only one semester of ROTC training, he attended the ROTC Leadership Training Course at Fort Knox, Ky., during the summer of 2013. He excelled in military training and was awarded a two-year ROTC scholarship to pay full tuition and fees for his graduate studies to include a monthly stipend of $450 per month for a two-year period. Also, Cadet McAllman will receive his commission as an officer in the US Army after he completes his graduate degree in two years.
LTC Richardson, professor of military science, has awarded Cadet McAllman his scholarship, and the US Army will send representatives from the Army Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and from ROTC Cadet Command at Fort Knox, Ky., to recognize a graduate student for successfully completing the Leadership Training Course, for earning a two-year scholarship with an undergraduate GPA of 3.34 and for his willingness to serve in the United States Army.
