“Although our celebration of student achievement cannot take place in the usual fashion, we are no less proud of them,” said Dr. Chaudron Gille, provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs. “I offer my heartiest congratulations to all of the award recipients. They exemplify how #UNGleads.”

Retired Army Col. Joseph Matthews, commandant of cadets, echoed that sentiment. He said senior cathe dets will receive their awards by mail, but returning cadets will have a special ceremony at a later date.

“I wish we could have recognized each cadet publicly this semester,” Matthews said. “But every one of the award recipients has excelled in the Corps of Cadets and their families can be proud of their performance.”
