EDMOND, Okla. (AP) - Two University of Central Oklahoma students have received military commissions after completing the UCO Army ROTC program and a bachelor’s degree.

Army ROTC is the largest commissioning source for the Army, producing about 70 percent of all officers. Cadets complete a curriculum of classroom and leadership lab instruction, physical training and various summer training opportunities while attending college as full-time students.

The newly commissioned officers are U.S. Army 2nd Lts. Douglas Christerson and Kevin Parker.

Christerson, of Edmond, earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology with a minor in military science and will serve as an aviation officer in the Oklahoma National Guard.

Parker, of Mustang, earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a minor in military science and will serve as an infantry officer in the Oklahoma National Guard.
