The ROTC unit wins honors

The summer of 1940 saw Wofford’s ROTC cadets win a significant honor at their summer encampment, as they placed first of the 28 colleges in the South.  Each cadet was rated on leadership, conduct, field training, rifle firing, athletics, and other activities.  This marked the first time that Wofford’s cadets had received this honor.  For the first time in the history of ROTC at Wofford, the college’s group collectively had the highest rating of any group.

I've been the archivist of Wofford College and the South Carolina United Methodist since 1999. I'll be sharing college, Methodist, and local history, documents, photographs, and other interesting stories on this blog, which I've been keeping since December 2007.
