"Negri was the most talented and naturally gifted Cadet leader that I have encountered in three years as a professor of military science. He was the number one Cadet on the GMC Order of Merit List and as my Cadet Battalion Commander he consistently demonstrated a servant-leadership style which produced exceptional results,” says Battalion Commander Thomas M. Nelson.
2LT Negri was a member of the Army Ten Miler team as well as the Georgia Military College Ranger Challenge Team. Additionally, he achieved the Georgia Military College standard to be an Order of Centurion and ran the Soldier Marathon at Fort Benning, GA. CDT Negri also participated in the Bataan Memorial Death March Marathon, the ruck march up Currahee (twice in the same day), and most recently earned the German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge at Mississippi State University.
2LT Negri demonstrates a steadfast commitment to serve the military, his subordinates, and the entire nation. He excelled at the Cadet Summer Training and also participated in Cadet Troops Leadership Training with the 3-1 CAV at Fort Benning. Additionally, Negri received the Superior Cadet Award at the annual Military Ball for his outstanding performance.
Along with the esteemed honor of being named the top Military Junior College Cadet, 2LT Negri received a $2,500 cash scholarship. Congratulations, Jesse!
