Second Lieutenant Gregory Mayo


We are extremely proud to announce that our HSA graduate Gregory Mayo was Commissioned to Second Lieutenant in the United States Army on Friday, 16 August 2013.  Mr. Cakiroglu, Cadet Lieutenant Colonel Michael Huff and First Sergeant Mr. Takacs our JROTC Army Instructor attended his Commissioning Ceremony held at Kent State University.  Second Lieutenant Mayo, (2LT) was Commissioned and Branched in the US Army Signal Corps.  2LT Mayo is our first Horizon Science Academy US Army JROTC graduate to receive a Commission in the United States Army.  The ceremony was an amazing event.  KSU swore in three (3) US Army Officers that evening.  Colonel Thomas Brown swore Second Lieutenant Mayo into the US Army.  First Sergeant Mr. Takacs our JROTC Army Instructor was asked by 2LT Mayo to be his first official salute as a Commissioned Officer.  Mr. Takacs was given a silver dollar by 2LT Mayo which is one of our many Army honored traditions.  After the Commissioning Ceremony the three (3) newly Commissioned Officers cut their cake with a sabre and shared cake, food and drinks with all.  We are truly honored to attend the KSU Commissioning Ceremony and to personally congratulate 2LT Mayo, his family and friends.  We’d like to thank KSU Army ROTC Department for the invitation.
