ROTC Temporarily Saved at UTM

November 6th, 2013 - By Charles Choate

Tennessee U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander has announced that the ROTC program at UT-Martin has been saved for at least two more years.

Alexander credited Tennessee Representatives Stephen Fincher, Diane Black and Phil Roe, along with Senator Bob Corker for their efforts to save the university program.

The Army announced Wednesday that they agreed to delay the closure of the program at UTM, East Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech.

Army officials said the additional two years will allow them time to improve the programs to meet their current needs.

Senator Alexander said the ROTC programs have produced some of the nation’s outstanding military leaders, and called the decision a “major victory” for students at the Tennessee schools.
