URI's ROTC students complete Camp Challenge

KINGSTON, R. I. -- July 25, 2000 -- Six students from the University of Rhode Island Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC) program recently completed Camp Challenge.

Camp Challenge is a five-week paid internship which students attend between their sophomore and junior years.

The camp's adventurous and challenging training attracts students from across the country to Fort Knox, Kentucky, where they learn about themselves and the Army.

During this five-week course of instruction, students were given numerous leadership responsibilities that taught them how to be a team player, solve complex problems, and communicate ideas to other members of the team.

While at camp, students validate or compete for scholarships valued at more than $18,000 per year.

In the fall, the students will officially become members of the URI ROTC Cramer's Sabers Battalion.

URI students who completed Camp Challenge and their hometowns are:

Student Hometown

Adam DiPetrillo Cumberland

Patrick Donaher Framingham, Mass.

Erika Huard Paxton, Mass

Ilea McKinney Madison, NJ

Adriana Ramirez Portsmouth

Jim Seward Toms River, NJ.
