Air Force ROTC Detachment 028 is proud to announce four outstanding cadets earned In-College Scholarship Program (ICSP) scholarships.
Cadet Brennan Moore received a Type One scholarship, which covers all expenses for tuition, room, and board, as well as a living stipend and book stipend. Type
One scholarships are especially competitive, representing about five percent of all scholarships awarded.
Cadets Olivia Bosma, Patricia Sablan, and Seung Woo Ban all won Type Two ICSP scholarships.
These lucrative scholarships provide thousands of dollars in tuition, room and board assistance, as well as a living stipend and money for books each semester.
In order to qualify for the ICSP, cadets need to have an outstanding GPA, high standardized test scores, exemplary physical fitness scores, and be ranked well by the commander among their peers.
For each of these cadets, the scholarships represent how much the Air Force needs highly qualified officer candidates such as themselves.
Not to be outdone by their cadets, the Detachment 028 Cadre collected a variety of awards over Christmas break as well.
Major David Richardson received Field Grade Officer of the Year, Captain Alan Frazier received Instructor of the Year, Master Sergeant April Fargher received Senior Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year, and Staff Sergeant John Ingersoll received Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year.
This places them at the top of hundreds of other AFROTC Cadre members around the country. As a team, Detachment 028 Cadre received the Air Force ROTC Team of the Year Award.
Not only do they have the best single instructors, but as a team they perform better than any other AFROTC Cadre. Outstanding cadets and cadre like these are what make Detachment 028 “The Best in the West.”
