Thousands of Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) cadets traveled to Fort Knox, Ky., earlier this summer for an intense, four-week summer training program. During the program’s July 6 graduation ceremony, an Austin Peay State University student was singled out for his ability to motivate his fellow soldiers.

Andrew C. Shriver, a Clarksville native with no prior military experience, completed the program’s Leader Development Course and received the Reserve Officers Association Award. This award is presented to the cadet in each regiment who reflects the best traits of a leader.

According to a U.S. Army press release, attendees at the Fort Knox Leader’s Training Course “are introduced to the Army, grouped into squads and platoons, and given the opportunity to experience all leadership roles while being coached and mentored by Army commissioned and non-commissioned officers. The course is progressive, with the focus starting with basic soldier skills like drill and ceremony and military customs, through individual skills to collective skills while placing cadets in leadership positions throughout.”
