MTSU’s Department of Military Science commissioned two senior ROTC student-cadets during a ceremony Friday, Aug. 7, in Keathley University Center Theater.
Jeffrey Enderson of Smyrna, Tennessee, and Damian Parker of Centerville, Tennessee, are two of the military’s newest members.
U.S. Army Major Jason Beck, a public affairs officer for the Southeast medical area support group at Fort Knox, Kentucky, was guest speaker. His primary message to Enderson, 26, and Parker, 25, was about trust.
Both Enderson and Parker are degree candidates for the Saturday, Aug. 8, commencement in Murphy Center.
A psychology major, Enderson will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. He received a reserve forces duty commission into the military intelligence branch of the Tennessee Army National Guard.
Parker, a criminal justice major, received a commission in the engineer branch of the U.S. Army reserves. He plans to pursue his master’s degree in engineering management at MTSU.
