Five ROTC cadets from Missouri University of Science and Technology were chosen for internships this summer.
Jacob Brakeman and Caitlyn McFarland were awarded internships through the United States Corps of Engineers. Brakeman, a senior in civil engineering from Saint Charles, Mo., will go to Rock Island Arsenal in Illinois. McFarland, a junior in architectural engineering from Kansas City, Mo., will go to Los Angeles.
Three students were selected for Cadet Troop Leader Training internships with the U.S. Army. Felicia Gililland, an ROTC student from Dixon, Mo., will serve in Alaska; Samuel Wong, a senior in civil engineering from Houston, Texas, will serve at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo.; and Alexander Maurer, a junior in architectural engineering from Rolla, will serve in Germany.
“There were only 14 applicants accepted for the Corps of Engineers internships, and we had two of them,” says Lt. Col. Brenden Burke, professor of military science at Missouri S&T. “These are just a few of the many outstanding opportunities available for our young officers-to-be.”
To qualify for these internships, cadets must be contracted with the Army ROTC program and actively pursuing a commission in either the active duty Army, Army Reserves or Army National Guard. Students with a minimum of four semesters to graduate are eligible to join the Army ROTC program and compete for similar internships.
