Army ROTC Cadet Jennie E. Matthews, a senior from Norfolk, was recently selected as the First Region winner of the Women's Army Corps Veteran's Association Pallas Athene Award.

The First ROTC Region includes 101 colleges and universities in the eastern United States. The award is given annually to an outstanding female cadet in each region. Fifty-five nominations were submitted in the First Region this year.

A cytotechnology major, Matthews was also awarded the Legion of Valor Bronze Cross for Achievement last summer. She will graduate in May as a second lieutenant in the Army's Medical Service Corps and hopes to become a MediVac pilot.
