ROTC Commissioning Ceremony | 11 a.m.
The Pride of PA Army ROTC Battalion hosted at Gannon University will commission 12 cadets out of the program on Saturday. The ceremony is a time-honored tradition that provides a visible transformation from cadet to Army officer. Cadets will take the Oath of Office, render the first salute and be presented any awards they have earned over the year. Of the four from Gannon University, cadets Justin Cavallaro and Camille Schiminger, stand in the top 20 percent of over 6,000 soon-to-be lieutenants from across the nation.
