Campus Champion

Salome Clarke earned highest ranking female in her flight at this summer’s ROTC training camp, positioning her to become an outstanding U.S. Air Force officer when she is commissioned in Spring 2018. Meanwhile, the junior with a dual major in French and communication studies has other big goals. The squadron commander, who also serves as resident advisor at Cheney Hall, embraces her leadership roles and the ability to influence and build trust with others. Finding her way to the ROTC program during her second semester, she says, “was like finding the puzzle piece that makes everything just fit together.”
