Seattle University’s Army ROTC unit received top honors for excellence
for academic year 2009-10 from U.S. Army Cadet Command. The Order of the
Founders and Patriots Award was announced by U.S. Army Major General James M.
McDonald in a letter to Lt. Col. Eric Farquharson, Professor of Military
Science. The ROTC program was selected as the best ROTC unit out of 273 other
Army ROTC programs. SU had previously won this award in 1997 and 2000.
