Congratulations to Tania Dixon, a senior at Norview High School in Norfolk, VA. We congratulate her for being awarded a 3-year ROTC scholarship to study at the Tuskegee University this fall.
Read more about Tania below, in her own words.
Greetings, my name is Ta’Nia Dixon. It is an honor for myself and my family to receive the Army ROTC 3-Year scholarship. After high school, I plan to attend Tuskegee University to study Political Science with a minor in Business Management. Upon graduation, I will commission into the United States Army as a 2nd Lieutenant and eventually become a Judge Advocate General. My contract will include serving on active duty for four years and four years in the reserves.
As far as my personal life, I am a very family-oriented person. I enjoy playing golf with my father, going shopping with my mom and sister, and lastly playing video games with my little brother. Over my high school career, I surprisingly made a new family: Norview High School’s NJROTC. During my four years of high school I was a member of the Norview NJROTC program. I was a member of the school’s nationally ranked All Area Five Team (PT, Academics, and Drill) and a member of the cadet staff. Norview’s NJROTC program greatly influenced me into becoming the young lady I am today. The program provided me discipline and hands-on leadership skills, ultimately instilling me with the utmost motivation and dedication any person could have. I hope that my Army ROTC experience at Tuskegee is just as fulfilling.
