Appalachian State University's ROTC Cadets are active in community service events throughout the year, in addition to maintaining academic standards and training for and competing in competitions. Most recently, student cadets represented the unvieristy and contributed to two very important causes.
In late February, cadets braved a cold, snowy day to participate in the ASU Polar Plunge, an event that raises money for Special Olymipics athletes in Watauga County and is sponsored by the Watauga County Parks and Recreation as well as local law enforcement agencies. ASU ROTC raised the most money of any school group, presenting a check for $1,726. The event raised a total of $7, 310. To learn more about this year's Polar Plunge, click here.
On February 28, Appalachian Ski Mountain and Appalachian Ski Patrol hosted the third annual Wounded Warrior event at the resort to honor, support, and raise awareness for woudned veterans. ASU ROTC partnered with the Appalachian Ski Patrol for a flag presention. To learn more and see images from the event, click here and here.
The College of Fine and Applied Arts is proud of our student cadets and their faculty leadership for representing the unviersity well and being a vital part of our community.
