Rinaudo, a criminal justice major, signed his three-year scholarship offer with the Mountaineer Battalion. 

Waynesburg University is an ROTC partner with WVU, the host institution. Joining Rinaudo were (pictured left to right) junior Charles Cook, junior Aaron Palmer, Rinaudo and 2nd Lt. Sam Lombardo, a 2014 criminal justice administration alumnus. Lombardo, who was commissioned through WVU in May, is working as a Gold Bar Recruiter at WVU until he reports for Military Police Basic Officer Leadership Course at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., in late November. Cook, a biology major from Cheswick, Pa., is a two-year scholarship recipient while Palmer, a junior sports management major from Leesburg, Va., is a four-year ROTC scholarship recipient and a member of the Yellow Jacket football team.
