What makes Cadet Campos stand out among her peers?

Cadet McCarthy embodies all the attributes of an Army leader. She excels in her academics with a 3.8GPA, is a member of the Saint Leo Cheer Team that competes nationally and is part of the LEAD Scholars program at Saint Leo University. Her dedication to the #ArmyROTC program and her potential is unmatched as she is ranked #1 ROTC Cadet at Saint Leo.

Why did you join Army ROTC?

I joined Army ROTC to work on myself and to help others. I want to be a part of a team and a part of something that is greater than myself. My plan is to become a strong leader and work hard to be the best version of myself and influence others to reach their full potential.

What motivates you as a leader?

Thinking of my future and where I want to be is my motivation to being a leader. I am excited for the opportunities the Army will offer me.

How do you manage ROTC and your other college commitments?

I manage ROTC, classes, work and cheer by using a calendar that I update weekly and cross tasks off as I go. I keep a to-do list that I separate by class and extracurriculars.
