For the second consecutive year, UNC Pembroke’s Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program has been recognized as one of the top ROTC programs in the nation.
UNCP’s program has been awarded the prestigious MacArthur Award. It was one of eight schools selected from among the 275 senior Army ROTC units nationwide, according to the U.S. Army Cadet Command.
“It is a tremendous honor as a battalion to receive this award for the second year in a row,” said Capt. Christopher Wieczorek, assistant professor of Military Science at UNCP.
