OU Naval ROTC Alumni, Staff, & Friends
Welcome to the University of Oklahoma Naval ROTC Alumni website. Student members should register using their expected graduation year. Staff and Friends please use the "Teacher/Staff" category instead of a year group. This site is established to promote the purposes of The University of Oklahoma Naval Alumni League. The League was established to assist the OU NROTC Unit and Midshipmen. This assistance includes funds to help support the Unit and to provide scholarships to students. The League also helps keep alumni in touch with the Unit and with fellow alumni.
2014 Annual Reunion
The Annual Reunion will be held on Friday, Sep 12, 2014. Last year we had another good turnout and met some new alumni. Our guest speaker this year will be RADM Jay Bynum who is serving as the Deptuy Director to the White House Military Office. The Sooners play Tennessee on Saturday, Sep 13th which should be a big game. We have arranged for a block of rooms at the NCED training center on Hwy 9 which is run by Marriott. Reservations can be made by using this link or calling 405-447-9000 and mentioning the alumni group. Many alumni will be staying there.
Your OU Naval Battalion is strong: We expect to commission 18 officers for academic year 2014/2015.
The Naval Alumni League (NAL) is expanding scholarship opportunity: This year $10,000 dollars of alumni sourced scholarships were given to midshipmen. This represents a continued increase over the last several years. NAL direct contributions and endowment payments pay for these scholarships as well as long term battalion support. NAL is beginning another endowment fund drive soon. The midshipmen are paying it forward with donating $5000 back to the endowment from their fund raising work. These future alumni are already making a difference in the lives of future midshipmen. THANK YOU!
Congratulations: Brigadier General select Tracy King (class of 88) and Rear Admiral select Jay Bynum (class of 85).
Oklahoma State Legislature: Oklahoma State Senator Corey Brooks sponsored a bill which has been signed into law which now gives in-state tuition to all out of state ROTC scholarship students. The new law is expected to result in more scholarships sent to OU by the Navy and Marine Corps.
Capt Shawn Lobree has relieved Capt Rod Clark who oficially retires in September. Thank to Rod for all he has done for the Unit and for a great career which started in the Armory back in 1980. Fair winds and following Seas!
