UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Major: Agricultural Education
Aaron Strebe has been serving in the Wisconsin Army National Guard since 2015. He is also Platoon Leader for UWRF ROTC Falcon Company. Strebe credits the program for helping him grow as a soldier and as a student.
“The ROTC program has taught me how to become a better leader in and out of uniform,” Strebe said.
Strebe’s love of agriculture, along with encouragement from family members who are alumni of UW-River Falls, brought him to campus to pursue a degree in agricultural education. After graduation, Strebe plans to teach agriculture and technology education and commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the Wisconsin Army National Guard.
“As a member of the veteran community, I feel proud and welcomed by students, professors and staff at UWRF,” said Strebe. “While attending UWRF, I have met several other veterans who have or are currently serving in the military and formed great friendships.”
