Selected as the top Army ROTC cadet at UH Mānoa, Mililani resident Natalia Cardona will be joining key military officials at the 2009 George C. Marshall ROTC Seminar in Lexington, Virginia, on April 15-17 to discuss issues directly bearing on national security.

Cadet Cardona is scheduled to be commissioned on May 17 at UH Mānoa Kennedy Theater. At that time, she will be branched as a Medical Service Corps Second Lieutenant, but will continue her education to complete a PsyD as a clinical psychologist. In addition to her ROTC activities, Cardona is a member of the Golden Key International Honor Society, tutor for the UH Athletics Program and has been on the Dean‘s List six times.

"Cadet Cardona has been an incredible example of a leader during her four years at UH Mānoa, serving as Battalion Commander and was the top cadet out of more than 35 seniors in the program," said LTC Rod Laszlo, professor of the UH Mānoa Military Science program.
