The University of Tennessee at Martin Skyhawk ROTC Battalion will host an ROTC Hall of Fame induction ceremony Thursday at 5 p.m. in Room 217 of Boling University Center.
The event is free and open to the public.

This year’s inductees include Maj. Gen. Mike Maloan, UT Martin Class of ’72; Col. James W. Adams, ROTC Class of ’84; Col. Leith A. Benedict, ROTC Class of ’85; retired Col. James W. Danley, ROTC Class of ’78; and Col. Stephen E. Walker, ROTC Class of ’81.
