What makes Cadet Campos stand out among her peers?
Crystal Campos, an MSIV #ArmyROTC Cadet, is currently the Cadet Battalion Commander for the Javelina Battalion. She sets the example by exceeding expectations outside of her normal duties and responsibilities as a scholar, athlete and leader.
She vigorously trained to earn the Norwegian Foot March Pin and volunteered her personal time to become a certified challenge course safety which allowed her to help facilitate a rappel tower event for the program.
She excels in her academics and is a member of Phi Theta Kappa, a national honors society. Crystal established herself as a mature mentor for younger Cadets in the program - she is a solid rock in the Javelina Battalion!
Crystal hails from Roma, Texas and received her first branch of choice, Field Artillery. She looks forward to Basic Officers Leaders Course (BOLC), her first duty station, and the leadership challenges she will face every day.
Why did you join Army ROTC?
“The Army ROTC provided a great opportunity for me to further my education to attain a college degree without being burdened by debt. I also enjoy being a part of something that serves a greater purpose, which motivated me to join the Active Duty Army.”
