Successful 50th Anniversary NIU ROTC Reunion Leads to $850 Donation

All proceeds raised from ROTC 50th Anniversary alumni events in October to benefit Cadet Fund.

   The NIU Division of University Advancement, led by Catherine Squires, CFRE '80, president and CEO of NIU Foundation/vice president for University Advancement, is proud to donate all proceeds from last October's NIU ROTC Huskie 50th Anniversary dinner back to the NIU Huskie ROTC Battalion on behalf of the NIU Huskie ROTC alumni.

   The proceeds, which total $850, benefit the Cadet Fund. The Cadet Fund supports the participation of the NIU Huskie ROTC Batallion in the Army Ten Miler, the annual Huskie Battalion Military Ball, and the ROTC Marksmanship team among many other opportunities.

   "Our 50th Anniversary events were a success because our alumni and cadets used a valuable opportunity to meet and forge the bonds that sustain a career in the military," NIU ROTC Chair Beth Liechti Johnson, '81 said. "Our alumni look forward to strengthening those connections in the coming years."
