Every year the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) recognizes some of our top Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC) cadets. On behalf of the AUSA, the Carlisle Barracks and Cumberland Valley Chapter presents awards to those deserving cadets in Chapter area schools including two ROTC programs at Dickinson College and Shippensburg University, and five JROTC programs at Carson Long, Cedar Cliff, Cumberland Valley, Gettysburg, and Red Land High Schools. The award ceremonies are typically held every spring, April – June before graduation.
Senior ROTC Awards – AUSA presents three awards for cadets in the college ROTC programs:
- Achievement Award – AUSA Medal and Certificate recognizing achievement presented to a deserving cadet as selected by the Professor of Military Science.
- History Award – book and AUSA Certificate presented to a deserving cadet.
- Top Graduating Senior – Carlisle Barracks and Cumberland Valley Chapter presents a $500 check to the top graduating cadet in the program.
