1st Lieutenant Aaron Brock, ‘20, Garners Young Alumnus Award
Army 1st Lieutenant Aaron Brock received the UNG Alumni Association’s (UNGAA) Young Alumnus Award at the Associations’ awards banquet on April 22, 2022. This distinction is given every year to an alumnus with an extraordinary record of service and support to the University of North Georgia.
Aaron graduated from UNG in 2020 with a B.S. in Political Science. He is currently serving as an Intelligence Officer in the Army National Guard and is currently on Active Duty in Washington, D.C. He is also one month away from completing his M.A. in Strategic Studies from Norwich University, a Senior Military College like UNG.
Aaron was nominated for the award by Mr. Heath Williams, UNG’s Director of Liaison and Military Operations. Aaron commented that he is “deeply thankful to [Mr. Williams] for his friendship and mentorship.”
Aaron holds two PSIA professors in particularly high regard — Dr. Carl Cavalli and Dr. Leander Kellogg — both of whom also served as his academic advisors. “Their classes were rigorous, deeply insightful, and very engaging. Both professors care deeply about their teaching professions and the success of their students. As a transfer student and full-time Cadet, I often had many questions about my academic progress; Dr. Cavalli and Dr. Kellogg never failed to provide me their patience, support, and guidance.”
