The UVa-Wise Board ap- proved the ROTC program in May following earlier approval by the Faculty Senate m the spring. "We are very excited to ini- tiate ~ ROTe program at UVa- Wise, said Chancellor David J. Prior. "We were the only public college or university in Virginia without an ROTe program." There was high interest in establishing an ROTC program on campus for several years, said UVa-Wise Provost Gil Blackburn. "The holdup was that we needed a commissioned officer to serve as professor of military science and a non-commis- sioned officer to work with the program," Blackburn said. UVa-Wise is collaborating with East Tennessee State Uni- versity on the ROTe program. Commissioned officers from ETSU are the inslructors of record for ROTC coursework offered at UVa-Wise. An officer from ETSU will be on campus several days a week to offer military science courses. The Virginia Army National Guard has posted Set. First Class William Willis on the UVa-Wise campus to assist with the program. Willis, a Dryden native, has served in the U.S. army and the Virginia Army National Guard for more than two decades. Willis was mobi- lized to lraq in 1990 with the 101st Airborne Division. He also served in Operation Noble Eagle, the stateside security pro- gram established after 9/11. He was stationed in Germany dur- ing the fall of the Berlin Wall. "This is a good opportunity for us," Blackburn said. "Cadets who successfully complete the program may choose to be com- missioned as part of graduation. Other students may want to participate or take ROTC fitness and leadership courses to help them in other careers." Scholarships and financial aid are available to those parti- cipating in the program. Mem-, bers of the National Guard and Army Reserve are also eligible to receive benefits. For more information, call the Office of College Relations, 276-328-0130. Local volunteers visit officials by Peter Mattson Three volunteers with local citizen-based watershed groups visited Virginia Senator Pbillip Pucker on June 3 to discuss issues related to their work and how it affects District 38. Lauren Lindgren and Carol Doss represented the Upper Tennessee River Roundtable, a non-profit organization with an overall interest in improving water quality in the Upper Ten- nessee River Watershed, while Peter Mattson spoke for the Clinch Valley Watershed Alli- ance, a partnership between the Clinch Valley Soil and Water Conservation District and St. Paul Tomorrow, dedicated to the preservation of the Clinch River and the restoration of downtown St. Paul. The volunteers discussed ma- ny issues, including the Round- table's plans for the greater area, and St. Paul Tomorrow's plans for their upcoming pro- jects. They described the Ap- palachian Eeo-Center project, taking shape in St. Paul, to Senator Puckett, and indicated the compatibility of the project with the goals of the Virginia Tobacco Indemnification Com- mission. The volunteers left the meet- hag hopeful that new alliances will be formed to benefit their work in the region. Lindgren and Mattson are Volunteers in Service to Ameri- ca (VISTA), working to pro- mote environmental conserva- tion and economic development in Southwest Virginia. Lindgren may be reached at 276-964- 4889, and Mattson at 276-762- Fridays at 7 p.m., and Worship Sundays at 6 p.m. Dennis Scarberry is pastor. All are welcome.
