Garden City Community College has received an Army National Guard ROTC designation. LTC, Ken Hutchison and Major Eric Hollingsworth of the U.S. Army Cadet Command spoke to a board meeting on February 20 about the recent Army National Guard ROTC designation for Garden City Community College. Garden City Community College is the only two-year college in the nation recognized as an official Army ROTC site.
LTC Hutchison explained the mission of the United States Army Cadet Command and how they partner with universities to recruit, educate, develop and inspire Senior ROTC Cadets. The purpose of the program is to develop and recruit quality prospects. The unique program at Garden City Community College offers benefits for students to take military science courses at GCCC then seamlessly transfer to the Pittsburg State University program. The unique 2+2 linkage creates a pathway to transfer and enter as an academic junior and immediately continue pursuit of a 4-year degree and army commission. The program also offers financial benefits with ROTC Scholarships, stipends and students can stack scholarships with financial aid.
