Alumni and Friends - How you can help

Dear Wildcat Alumni,

For those who have expressed an interest in supporting the program, please know that your contributions to the "Wildcat Army ROTC Alumni Development Fund" are essential in providing the cadets the best possible leadership development system on UK's campus.  Of note, recent years' contributions enabled us to establish a Cadet computer lab, furnish our new Cadet lounge, provide merit scholarships, offset Military Ball costs, as well as other key initiatives.  Please know that cadets will continue their fund raising efforts, but it is imperative to keep this time commitment reasonable when considering all their other responsibilities.  Given the minimal level of university funding, it is only through your generous support that we are able to sustain the program.

We need support for events including the Army 10-Miler trip, the Staff Ride program, and the Military Ball/Awards Dinner.  Donations can be made through the UK Alumni Development Office for the "Wildcat Army ROTC Development Fund", or directly through the Army ROTC department c/o Ms. Wanda Brooks.  Of note, we will be asking for volunteers to sponsor individual cadets for the Army 10-Miler.  The final team selections will be based on a run-off at the beginning of the semester.  Once the cadets are identified, we will send out the final list, and a donation of $200 per Cadet will be combined with internal fund raising activities to cover registration, hotel, and uniform costs.  Please let me know if you are's a great way to know exactly who your donation will be helping. 

I am thrilled to be a part of this team, and I am committed to every Cadet, Soldier and Family. These will be exciting times and we will accomplish great things, but we will accomplish them as a team.  I encourage each of you to visit anytime!

Please pass along this note to any alumni who may have slipped through the cracks. If you have any concerns of questions, please don't hesitate to contact our department manager, Ms. Wanda Brooks at Thanks again for your continued service and support.

Alumni Luncheon

At the Alumni Luncheon, Cadets of UK Army ROTC get the chance to have a good meal and meet with Veterans of the United States Military. This oppurtunity is both educational and enlightening for the future Officers of the US Army. We appreciate all the Veterans who came out and met with Cadets, and gave us a bit of knowledge and insight into military life.
