Weinhold consistently maintains a grade point average above 3.5.

“During the last three years at Norwich, Tim has consistently demonstrated extraordinary leadership and character attributes,” Commandant of Cadets Holden said. “He is highly respected throughout the university community for setting standards of excellence in academics, athletics, leadership and service to others. Tim and our new leadership team represent the best of the best!”

Regimental staff sections are assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company. Led by the regimental commander and the command staff, they perform administration, operational planning, logistics and other key functions.

Weinhold and next year’s cadet officers and NCOs will be formally promoted during a Corps of Cadets Review with Change of Command Ceremony on Friday, May 5, 2017. The ceremony will be held on the Upper Parade Ground at 3:15 p.m.
