Faculty Marshal Participation Information
Ceremony Report Time: 45 minutes prior to the ceremony
Location: Gymnastics Room (Found off of Lobby B)
Overview: Marshals walk in front of the group of students during the processional and sit with the students in the reserved aisle seat. During the ceremony, when tapped by the ROTC cadets, marshals stand and walk the students out the rear doors of the gym, up the side hallways to the stage. When the first student crosses the stage on your side, meet them at the front of the stage and walk back to your seats with them. You then sit with them for the remainder of the ceremony until the Platform Party has exited the gymnasium.
