The military science program, of which ROTC is a part, includes Bethel University in McKenzie; Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson; Jackson State Community College, Lane College Union University in Jackson. A recent agreement also adds Murray State University in Murray, Ky., to the program, strengthening the relationship between these institutions allowing Skyhawk Battalion to recruit the best brightest cadets from these areas. The program will also welcome a new professor of military science in the coming months. Lt. Col. Lowell E. Howard Jr. will join the university faculty this summer. He follows Lt. Col. Michael W. Johnson, who has led the battalion since ROTC has a long tradition at UT Martin, we re proud have them as part of the College of Agriculture Applied Sciences, said Dr. Todd Winters, dean. Military training agriculture education were original parts of the l-grant mission, therefore it makes sense that (the Department of Military Science Leadership) is part of the College (of Agriculture Applied Sciences). The addition of Murray State as one of our affiliates will ensure that ROTC at UT Martin will remain a fixture on campus for a long time. The UT Office of Government Relations Advocacy facilitated interactions through the military comm structure to appeal the original closure decision. This assistance, combined with the support encouragement of high-ranking program alumni, played a valuable role in safeguarding the future of the Skyhawk Battalion. Among those were retired Marine Corps Lt. Gen. John Castellaw retired Army Lt. Gen. Dennis Cavin, both UT Martin graduates. Having served for 30 years as a regular reserve officer in the U.S. Air Force, I could not be more pleased with the confirmation we will retain our military leadership program, said Dr. Jerald Ogg, provost vice chancellor for academic affairs. Our ROTC battalion has a long history of training outsting officers, continuing that tradition of leadership preparation is good for both our students the nation they wish to serve. UT Martin is fortunate to have extended support from the Department of the Army to ensure the Skyhawk pipeline of outsting officers is not only flowing but exping, said Rakes. The program will be reevaluated in January 2016, but university officials believe the program s annual mission level can be met or exceeded.
