May 20, 2015, The U.S Army Cadet Command announced the winners of the MacArthur Awards for the school year 2013-2014. The award recognizes the eight schools, selected from among the 275 senior Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) programs nationwide, as the top programs in the country. The awards, presented by Cadet Command and the Gen. Douglas MacArthur Foundation, recognizes the ideals of “duty, honor and country” as advocated by MacArthur. It is based on a combination of achievement of school’s commissioning mission, its cadets’ performance and standing on the command’s National Order of Merit List and its cadet retention rate.
We would like to congratulate the University of Hawaii at Manoa Army ROTC program for earning the 2015 MacArthur Award.
