Leading and learning

Kayla Bethea ’14

Stationed at Al Udeid Air Base in Qatar, Bethea is the executive officer for the 12th Missile Defense Battery. She leads a 90-person unit. “Wofford ensured that I had the experience to interact with all kinds of individuals, which helped me become an adaptable leader.”

Sarah Jane Lamberth ’15

Lamberth is a distribution platoon leader supporting an armor battalion at the 1st Infantry Division in Fort Riley, Kan. “Wofford prepared me for military service by providing me the personal skills to be able to communicate well with others as well as the fundamentals for eloquent and effective writing.” The above photo shows Lamberth (right) on a tank while deployed overseas in support of a joint coalition force exercise for Operation Eager Lion.

Caity White ’17

White is in the Army under its Healthcare Professions Scholarship Program. “This allows me to attend medical school at no personal cost, and I will serve as an Army physician once I have completed my medical training.” She’s currently attending the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
