USG Has Two of Nation’s Top ROTC Units

The University System of Georgia has two of the top eight Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) programs in the nation, according to the U.S. Army Cadet Command and the General Douglas MacArthur Foundation. North Georgia College and State University and Georgia Southern University received 2010 MacArthur Awards in early February.

The awards, which recognize a unit’s performance based on the ideals of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, were presented at the Winter Commander’s Conference in Newport News, Va., on Feb. 2.

North Georgia which also earned MacArthur Awards in 1991 and 1995, was honored as the nation’s top Army ROTC brigade of 2010, and Georgia Southern was designated as the country’s 6th brigade.

The complete list, in order of ranking, is as follows: North Georgia, Rochester Institute of Technology (N.Y.), University of North Dakota, Campbell University (N.C.), Cameron University (Okla.), Georgia Southern, University of Cincinnati (Ohio) and Santa Clara University (Calif.).

The MacArthur Awards have been presented by Cadet Command and the MacArthur Foundation since 1989. The Army ROTC battalions selected for the awards have been found to be the most successful of the command’s 273 units in accomplishing the mission of training and commissioning the majority of the lieutenants entering the Army each year.
