Army Cadet Alex Master ’09 received the George C. Marshall Award during a conference at the Marshall Center at the Virginia Military Institute, Lexington, Va. The award is named in honor of Gen.

The award is presented annually to the most outstanding Army ROTC cadets in military science studies and leadership values in each battalion at host universities and colleges. This is a national award and the highest award an ROTC cadet can receive.
