詹妮弗Fillebrown,海军/年的ROTC学生

UF鳄鱼营海军官校学生之一的已-被选定为2019年海军联邦信贷联盟(NFCU)所有的美国海军年度ROTC学生。海军官校学生1 / C詹妮弗Fillebrown竞争了反对其他58名学生的全国场和后备军官训练队结束12 NFCU已经任命她从四个顶级质量从海军后备军官训练队入围域场海军/海军赢家制造。

Fillebrown是核筛选海军官校学生,即将加入该国的潜艇力量。此外,她是用UF工程航天工程专业的学生。随着这一崇高的荣誉,海军官校学生Fillebrown赢得了$ 6,500名奖学金为她继续教育。也为她赢得了单位工作(海军/海军学生协会)到$ 5000名奖学金ROTC海军官校学生,这将有助于旅行到不同的会议和其他活动的领导贯穿全年。

接过Fillebrown从学习一段时间,她的下跌结束考试回答有关准备一些问题,这意味着她的奖励。

问:什么是竞争2019联邦信贷联盟所有美国海军海军年度ROTC学生的依据是什么?

答:我是由海军后备军官训练队的工作人员UF评奖委员会选择采访时表示,包括奖励我收到了,我的GPA,社会参与等审查根据评奖委员会的建议,队长佩雷拉,海军科学(PNS)的教授赞同我的提名,并提交了资料NFCU。是否有来自全国各地的涵盖三个ROTC分支(陆军,空军,海军和陆相)59名候选人。从各三个分支中的四名候选人被选定为“所有美国队,”这是在十月下旬通过社交媒体公布。一名候选人从每组四个选为“年度ROTC学生,”我选择了海军,海洋领域的人。

船长SIL佩雷拉,海军科学教授和指挥官UF对她来说,海军预备役军官训练团(NROTC)单位的成就,“它已经,被激励观看海军官校学生1 / C Fillebrown成长,学习,并在用友的鳄鱼大队领导。我有看她的快感擅长学术,身体上和她在用友我的三个年的领导职位在单位。在位置上见证珍妮的追求卓越的坚定的驱动器时,它涉及到我毫不奇怪,她是NFCU对“年度ROTC学生海军/海军选择。我们引以为傲的她的成就,并期待她的加入舰队潜艇军官她毕业及佣金五月之后“。

问:你认为什么是造成你赢?

A: I believe my GPA probably set me apart (3.97 cumulative). I am sure that the awards I had received from the Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering department previously, the Albritton Scholarship and the John & Mittie Collins Scholarship, set me apart as well. My ongoing thesis work on Hypersonic/Rocket Trajectory Optimization also diversified my application.

General Albritton, who sponsors the Brigadier General James P. and Edythe P. Albritton Scholarship observed, “Pat and I met Midshipman Jennie Fillebrown when we presented her with our scholarship award. Conversations during the evening impressed us with her academic achievements and her dedication to serve in the Navy. We were not surprised when she won our scholarship the second time. She had earned it through her leadership in Navy ROTC and Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. The Navy will receive her as an outstanding Commissioned Officer. I would have been proud to have her serve under my command.”

Dr. Anil Rao, Professor and Erich Farber Faculty Fellow in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, commented, “Jennifer has been fantastic to work with both as a student in my class (astrodynamics) and as an honors thesis student. Jennifer is one of the best students I have ever had in my 13+ years at the University of Florida. If I could, I would take Jennifer as a PhD student in my group in a heartbeat.”

Q: How does being a Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering student complement being a Navy ROTC student, and vice versa?

A: I think, at the most practical level, success in either role relies heavily on critical thinking and problem-solving skills. I strive for excellence in everything I do. I feel it is an important goal when lives are at stake, in war or in building airplanes. ROTC has invested much in developing each midshipman’s ethical foundation, and a strong sense of ethical responsibility is very important in engineering. Finally, Navy ROTC and the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering have both given me opportunities to grow and develop my leadership and teamwork skills in a variety of applications, and those lessons are more valuable to me than any technical background in either area.

Dr. John Abbitt, senior lecturer in the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE), spoke of her academic accomplishments, “Jennifer is intelligent, focused, industrious, curious, interesting, friendly, versatile, sincere, principled, and humble. I have had her in two of my classes, and she has been an absolute delight! She and I have had many conversations where I couldn’t help but notice her considerable talents and instincts for high quality work. She is respected by her classmates who look to her for guidance. She will be a strong asset for the Navy, and I am sure she will make many great contributions to the service and her country.”

问:这是什么意思是一个“核筛选候补生”?

于:这意味着我已经签署了与海军合同,肯定我会寻求核力量训练在海军。特别是在我的情况,我将去潜艇。要提供合同,我不得不提出我的成绩单,这样我可以考虑接受采访去年十二月。我前往华盛顿特区,旨在潜艇船用反应堆,并通过与两位技术工程师在那里工作面试去了。他们主要集中在物理和工程问题,我不得不在纸面上工作了,但他们可以从我的成绩单任何技术一流的问我什么。通过与考德威尔将军角色面试结束后,合同他们给我。

问:什么是毕业以后你打算?

到:未来五年设定:第一18-24个月的核电管道的训练,那么责任周期36个月潜艇。我的工程背景将有助于了解在不同的系统在潜艇和核反应堆非常有帮助。这将是学习如何在恶劣环境下安全运行至关重要他们。我还不知道,如果我想要追求的军事生涯,或在工程中的民用领域。我只知道,我希望我的工作是有意义的和我的国家的利益和整个世界。有对敞开大门;我甚至可以按照凯拉巴伦,第一位女潜艇军官之一,他最近刚刚入选美国航空航天局的宇航员候选类(2017)的脚步。我想我的工程学位航天可能是非常宝贵的存在!我绝对有兴趣回来用友追求硕士学位留学深造或取得博士学位在航空航天领域,如果机会来了。

问:你会向其他工科学生鳄鱼365bet参加的海军后备军官训练队的好处说什么?

答:没有什么能够阻止“新生十五”(那些15磅许多新生似乎获得他们的第一年,在大学期间)去像强制性的体能训练。许多在后备军官训练队海军和海军选项是工程专业的学生填补。从我在节目中的第一个星期,我已经从其他工程专业的学生谁劝我上提供给我的资源和在其类以有益的辅导。海军支付导师,一周前来的四倍。他们在各自的海军官校学生的学业成功非常投入。我的学费是由海军支付;毕业后我的工作设置,所以我只担心我的教育。在夏天,我已经得到了去海军培训计划和周游世界。

海军官校学生Fillebrown和其他两个获奖者,来自陆军,空军域,分别为12月12日公布的人住在ESPN大学生足球直播节目(下午4:30 ET)然后三名学生前往马里兰州安纳波利斯,对于两天的庆祝活动于12月27日在球场上的识别事件最终在军事碗。
