Nursing student, ROTC cadet, field hockey player featured on WABI

Lydia Gavner, a nursing student at the University of Maine, was featured on WABI (Channel 5). Gavner also is a member of the UMaine field hockey team and a cadet in the UMaine Army Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC). “I have a list of priorities. Obviously I can’t play field hockey if I don’t have good grades. I can’t graduate as a second lieutenant if I don’t pass school first,” Gavner said. “It’s definitely a balance.” “She’s a great recruiting tool for us,” said Lt. Col. Michael Davis, a professor of military science. “We say, ‘Look at this person, she can do it all.’ And she’s very successful in all three aspects of it.”
