Road March - Members of the UAM ROTC take their first road march of the semester March 6.

   Students of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps at the University of Arkansas at Monticello participated in the first road march for the semester March 6. Some of the ROTC students walked three miles, while some of the more experienced members walked six miles.  

   Students in the ROTC program marched throughout the city of Monticello. Some members of the Arkansas National Guard in Monticello also marched with some of the ROTC students.  

   Lt. Ervin Miller said the march is a new addition to the program at UAM. He plans to have the students march every one-half to two months each semester. The purpose of the marches is to help get the students in better physical shape. 

   According to GoArmy.com, the Army ROTC provides individuals with the tools, training, leadership and experiences they need to become Officers in the U.S. Army. 

   Through Army ROTC any one can:  

  • receive help with college tuition through an Army ROTC scholarship,
  • gain experience only the ROTC can offer,
  • gain the respect of peers and future employers and
  • train to become a leader and manager.

   Miller said he’s glad the program is up and running at UAM.  

   Any students interested in signing up for the ROTC program at UAM can contact Lt. Col. Iverson Jackson or Miller at 870-460-1420 or stop by Harris Hall Room 124 for more information.
