SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii (July 29, 2014) --Cadet Matt S. Borland (right) and Honolulu District Construction Control Representative Joseph Tribbey discuss the features of the Quad B Renovation Project on Schofield Barracks. Borland is an ROTC Cadet with the University of Michigan. He came to the Honolulu District this summer for the Cadet District Engineer Program. This program allows West Point and ROTC Cadets an opportunity to gain first-hand experience with construction and engineering in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Cadets are typically assigned for one month of training at Corps Districts to assist work on military construction, civil, mechanical, electrical, or environmental engineering projects. The program provides them exposure to the Corps’ mission and enables them to explore potential active duty opportunities within the U.S. Army Engineer Branch profession.
