Inman wins top ROTC honors
DANVILLE, KY -- Centre College senior James M. Inman of Harrodsburg has been honored with the George C. Marshall Award, given each year to the top cadet in the University of Kentucky Army ROTC. Centre students participate in ROTC at the university through a partnership agreement between the two schools.
Inman was selected on the basis of his grade point average, his performance in the ROTC program at UK and at Advanced Camp, and his leadership in the cadet corps during the past year.
Each Army ROTC program in the United States chooses one Marshall winner each year, and all the winners attend a three-day seminar in Lexington, Va., which is home to the Marshall Research Foundation and Library. The seminar is set for April 11-14.
Inman is completing a double major in mathematics and history at Centre. He earned an Army ROTC three-year scholarship in 1997. Inman is currently serving as the cadet battalion commander at the University of Kentucky. He is the first partnership cadet selected to serve in the top cadet position in over a decade.
In addition to ROTC, Inman is active in many programs on the Centre campus. He is a member of Phi Alpha Theta history honor society and serves as the Mathematics Department student advisor. In addition, he has donated time away from Centre and ROTC to tutor students from local area high schools in math and science.
Inman was recently accessed into the Army's Combat Engineer Branch, and he will receive his Second Lieutenant's Commission in a May 28th ceremony at Centre. He will serve as camp cadre at ROTC Advanced Camp, Fort Lewis, Wash., this summer, and will attend Engineer Officer Basic Course at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., in the fall.
