Matzke completes cadet course

  Timothy S. Matzke, an Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) cadet at Maranatha Baptist University, Watertown, Wis., has graduated from the Cadet Leader Course (CLC) at Fort Knox, Ky. CLC is a 30-day summer training event focused on training cadets to solve complex leadership issues and problems at the company level. 
  Cadets arrive at CLC with a baseline of military skill sets; the cadets also have developed critical thinking and problem solving abilities during the academic years. CLC builds upon the work accomplished on campus and develops the cadet's small unit leadership ability in a tactical environment. 
  The leadership experience supports continued cadet development during the senior year of the program. Cadets usually attend CLC between their junior and senior years of college, and they must complete the course to qualify for commissioning. Upon successful completion of the course, the ROTC program, and graduation from college, cadets are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army, Army National Guard, or Army Reserve.
  Matzke is the son of Elizabeth and David Matzke of Birch Run.
