Grambling State University Tiger Battalion recognizes five Army ROTC cadets for Contracts and Scholarships. The Army ROTC cadets worked hard through various obstacles to receive this accomplishment.

The cadets traveled to Ft. Knox, Kentucky to complete Cadet Leadership Training. They passed the APFT fitness test and met academic standards that the GSU Tiger Battalion required.

Once cadets are contracted and scholarship they start receiving money stipends that can help them financially throughout college. Once the cadets signed the contract it is mandatory that they are there to attend and participate in Army ROTC events on campus.

The cadets are passionate about their future and what the army has to offer to them. 

“I feel good to be contracted and now with scholarship, I know once I graduate I will become a United States Army Officer,” said cadet Dontavius Moore.

Lt. Col. Denise Moultrie, who is the Grambling State University Army ROTC Battalion Commander, has high expectations of her cadets and future second lieutenants. 

“Even if you do not become an officer you will learn the leadership skills and qualities of an officer,” says Moultrie, who support the cadets in whatever their future endeavors are in the Army and outside the Army.

Cadet Chauncey Wells shared his thoughts on his accomplishment, “I still have the same goals; my goals are still in action as they were as before I became contracted and when I graduate I’ll become a second lieutenant.” 

“It was an honor to be presented before my family and friends with a scholarship and as well to be contracted to the United States Army,” said Cadet Meagan Stigall. 

Through their hard work and dedication they showed perseverance to get where they are now. 

Overall the cadets are proud to serve their nation, represent their university and also look forward to becoming a second lieutenant in the future.
