Cadet to receive award
Augusta, Ga. – Cadet Commander Clayton J. Dixon will receive the 2008 George C. Marshall Award which is presented to the most outstanding cadet in the U.S. Army ROTC program at Augusta State University. Cadet Dixon, a senior biology major, has been a member of the ROTC program for the last four years as one of the top Cadets in his platoon, says Michele Goddette, chair of ASU’s Department of Military Science. Cadet Dixon is also listed in the top 20 percent in the U.S. Army Cadet Command National Order of Merit List for 2008.
“Cadet Dixon is of outstanding character,” says Col. Goddette. “He is very vibrant, energetic, and has committed his life to the army.”
After graduation, he hopes to follow in his mother’s footsteps and enter the medical branch of the Army. Cadet Dixon’s mother is Command Sergeant Major Althea Dixon, who is the Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Army Surgeon General in Washington, D.C.
The award is named in honor of George C. Marshall, former chief of staff, and Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense. General Marshall was also the only career soldier to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
