In January 2013 the Secretary of the Army created the SROTC Evaluation Criteria for the 2013-2014 school year. The criteria were then published by the Army Assistant Secretary for Manpower and Reserve Affairs and a complete program review was requested. Cadet Command held an annual review of the program at Wentworth and a letter was received recently by COL. Michael Lierman, President of Wentworth from Brigadier General Peggy Combs, Commanding General of Cadet Command.
BG Combs stated; “I would like to express on behalf of the United States Army Cadet Command that we thank you for your leadership and continued support of the Army Senior Reserve Officers Training Corps program. I would also like to thank Wentworth for affording the cadets the additional leadership opportunities outside of Army ROTC. I would recognize your administration’s contributions to our SROTC Cadets in the way of providing over $400,000 in room and board scholarships. BG Combs, closed her letter by stating that in sum, Wentworth Military Academy and College’s SROTC program successfully met the Secretary of the Army SROTC Evaluation Criteria for the 2013-14 school year and extended her thanks to the school for its continuing commitment to the development of future leaders for the Army and the Nation through the support of the Army SROTC program.
President Lierman stated, “We are extremely pleased that our program review by Cadet Command resulted in successfully meeting all criteria and expectations. We are very proud of the 2nd Lieutenants that have been commissioned through this program over the past several years. I believe we have been very fortunate here at Wentworth to have some outstanding leadership in the SROTC department. The Professors of Military Science who direct the program and their staffs have worked very hard to recruit, train, and mentor these cadets who have been commissioned officers.”
“I believe it also speaks to an outstanding job by our college instructors, and our Dean in helping these young officers complete the academic rigors of the college program. I believe these two programs go hand in hand. It has truly been a team effort!”
